Celebrate Student Research at Villanova on Friday, Nov. 11

crf undergraduate research symposium

Mark your calendars! Friday, November 11, 2022,  is an important day on campus as we celebrate excellence in graduate and undergraduate research at Villanova University!

The Center for Research and Fellowships (CRF) invites all to attend the Undergraduate Research Symposium on Friday, November 11th from 1-4 p.m. in the Villanova Room of the Connelly Center! Undergraduates from all colleges who engaged in research will share their work with you and the Villanova community through poster and oral presentations on a variety of topics. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the research happening in our community. The fourth volume of Villanova’s peer-reviewed undergraduate research journal, Veritas: Villanova Research Journal (VVRJ), will also be available at the symposium for all to enjoy. For more information on the event, please visit our webpage or contact crfresearch@villanova.edu.

Grad CLAS Symposium

The Office of Graduate Studies (CLAS) invites the Villanova Community to support and celebrate the research of graduate students on Friday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. Oral presentations will take place in the Connelly Cinema followed by poster presentations in the Art Gallery.

Research is an essential part of the graduate student experience in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Villanova. Ranging from Biology and Chemistry to History and Philosophy, CLAS graduate students pursue a wide variety of fascinating research projects. For this symposium, students were invited to use the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) format to submit a three-minute video about their work. Students were instructed to prepare to address a broad, non-specialist audience. The symposium will feature live oral and poster presentations from the top submissions along with a meet and greet with the presenters and graduate faculty. Refreshments will be served and we look forward to seeing you there!

This ACS approved event, sponsored by the Office of Graduate Studies (CLAS) and co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library and the Center for Graduate Research and Education, is free and open to the public.

Please be sure to help us honor the outstanding work of both our undergraduate and graduate students at Villanova!
