RICE Symposium

RICE poster exhibit

RICE is a cross-disciplinary celebration of high-quality, independent student research, internships, and creative endeavors that provides students with an opportunity to learn what it is like to be part of an academic conference.

The 10th Annual Centre RICE (Research, Internships, and Creative Endeavors) Symposium will take place on campus April 13, 2017.

RICE Symposium Overview

Students in all disciplines and in all class years are invited to present their recent research, internships, or creative endeavors in the form of a 15-minute presentation, poster, gallery display, or performance. The scholarship presented should be high-quality and should represent a significant effort by the student, typically outside of a classroom setting. Scholarship related to class activities is acceptable if it is part of a class with a significant research/scholarship component. Scholarship conducted during an internship is acceptable, but should be presented as an oral presentation if it was previously presented as a poster at an internship showcase. Regardless of where and how it was developed, the presented scholarship should represent a developed and sustained project.
The annual Centre RICE Symposium is sponsored by the Dean, Associate Dean, and a grant from Dr. John Barton.

RICE Symposium Goals

1. Provide an opportunity for students to present their rigorous, sustained, mentored scholarship in a professional manner to the wider campus community.
2. Celebrate the high-quality, mentored scholarship completed by Centre students.
3. Improve the oral communication skills of student presenters through feedback from mentors and audience members.
4. Model appropriate behavior at academic conferences for both presenters and non-presenters.
5. Inspire non-presenting students to seek opportunities to participate in mentored scholarship.
