Each April, the University sets aside a day to showcase the students and their academic achievements. This academic year, University Day will be Wednesday, April 10, 2019. This is a campus-wide event organized as a conference with student presentations offered throughout the day. One of the event’s objectives is to provide students with the opportunity to experience a conference environment. A second equally important objective is to model a lifelong learning habit by highlighting the importance of participating in out-of-classroom educational venues.


Presentations come from individual students, groups or an entire class with faculty and staff serving as advisers to the student presentations. The work presented may take any form; traditional research, service learning, internships, creative works, cultural awareness, or community service.

The theme for this year’s event is “In Their Shoes”. All students are encouraged to submit proposals that will highlight work done in the summer ’18, fall ’18 and spring ’19 semesters.

In addition to the academic presentations, a complimentary luncheon is served.

If students have questions about University Day, please contact either a course instructor or a member of the University Day Committee.
