Student Research Symposium

The Student Research Symposium is a full-day event held each spring to celebrate the vibrant intellectual life and learning at Luther. Students share their research and creative work with fellow students, faculty, staff, alumni/ae, parents, and the broader community. Seniors graduating with honors, awards, and fellowships are in particular recognized.

This year's Symposium will be held on Friday, May 10, 2019. Classes are suspended for the day, to allow all community members to participate. The Symposium will highlight the best fruits of the scholarship, research, and creative activity of students from disciplines across the college, and will feature:

  • An opening plenary session, with festival music and examples of individual and collaborative research from this year
  • Concurrent sessions throughout the day in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and arts, featuring oral presentations and performances and offering opportunity for discussion with the presenters
  • A short convocation to recognize academic excellence in the class of 2019
  • A session dedicated to poster presentations, where the community can pause, ponder, and converse with the students involved
  • Presentations of the best research projects completed by our first-year Paideia 112 students
  • Evening events that showcase the performing arts
