The project was started by Dan Pratt, Bill Norman, Sherri Kirkpatrick and Jeana Wilcox in 2009 and has been growing dramatically each year. The Scholars’ Showcase now includes over 100 scholarly works and is an all-day event. The goal is to develop a culture of high quality research, scholarship and creative activities. The showcase is an opportunity for students and professors to professionally demonstrate their scholarly works for the entire campus to see and enables all schools to see each other’s work in one place. Scholarly works are represented by posters, presentations, demonstrations, senior projects, art shows, musical instrument recitals and more.
