Welcome to the 25th Annual Celebration of Student Scholarship!

To celebrate the 25th Annual Celebration of Student Scholarship, we are holding a two-day virtual event opening on Wednesday, April 7 and closing on Thursday, April 8 with two keynote speakers - Sharing Tabonuco & Giizhik with Dr. Erica J. Moore and Dr. Sharity Bassett at 3:00PM ET.

Due to the COVID-19 public health response, this year's event is being re-imagined as a virtual event through the web platform GatherTown. Our virtual world is called NMUV Campus. Please familiar yourself with how to navigate NMUV Campus prior to the event. We will open the space a day before the actual event so you can check out the hard work that went into creating an interactive virtual world for you. The NMUV Campus will open for you Wednesday, April 6 but our event is on April 7 - 8. Here are some things to help you get started:

The Celebration of Student Scholarship is an annual event held on the NMU campus to celebrate the scholarship and creativity of both undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines. Students share their work with the NMU and Marquette communities by presenting posters, delivering oral presentations, sharing visual art installations, and submitting essays on scholarly, creative, and artwork. The event is free and open to the public. Students interested in participating should talk with their faculty advisors for help submitting an abstract.

This event is an important opportunity for student researchers and creatives to share their work in a way that is accessible to the general public. Our mission is to improve the way we communicate about academic topics and ideas while recognizing the hard work done by NMU students under the guidance of faculty. Join us to discover and celebrate student scholarship. 


Thank you to those who made this event possible.
