University Research Day Set for April 19, 2018


Research Day logo


The third annual Catholic University Research Day will be held on Thursday, April 19.

University Research Day celebrates intellectual curiosity across disciplines. Last year, more than 250 graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and staff showcased their research in poster and oral presentations. And hundreds more came out to hear them. Keynote speakers, food trucks, and performances gave the day a festival-like feel.

Research Day, an annual event, brings students and faculty out of their classrooms and labs to share their work and learn about the breadth of scholarly endeavors taking place beyond their own areas of study.
