The Celebration of Student Scholarship and Creativity offers Providence College students the opportunity to showcase their unique scholarly and creative work for an audience of faculty, student peers, staff, and community members. The event also celebrates the quality and range of student engagement in different disciplines.
The Planning Committee for the Celebration is seeking nominations of Providence College students who have completed an exemplary project under the mentorship of a faculty member within the past year. The Committee also welcomes nominations of students who are in the process of completing projects of outstanding quality. Projects that are accepted will be included in the Fifth Annual Celebration of Student Scholarship and Creativity, which will be held Wednesday, April 23, 2014 in Slavin Center.
Presentations will be evaluated by teams of disciplinary experts from Providence College, colleagues from other institutions, alumni, and community members. A number of outstanding presentations will be specially recognized.
Most projects will be presented on posters, but may incorporate computer laptops, portable audio players, handouts, original artwork, or other compact visual displays. Nominations of performing arts presentations (dance, film, music, and theatre) are also encouraged, and every effort will be made to secure optimum performance spaces. In addition, the committee encourages nominations of inter-disciplinary projects, including those relating to themes highlighted in the Freshman Common Reading Program. Exemplary group projects are also encouraged.
Faculty members are invited to nominate high-quality projects that are or have been under their supervision or direction. The final decision on which projects to include in the Celebration will be made by the committee, which will select as many nominated projects as possible to represent the breadth of student research, creativity, and engagement at the college.Faculty members are invited to nominate high-quality projects that are or have been under their supervision or direction.
