RICE Symposium


This all-campus event serves as a venue to showcase Centre students’ research projects, internship experiences, and creative works that they have completed over the past year.

The 8th Annual Centre RICE (Research, Internships, and Creative Endeavors) Symposium will take place on campus April 9, 2015.

RICE Symposium Overview

Students in ALL DISCIPLINES and in ALL CLASS YEARS are invited to present their recent academic work at the symposium. The symposium is set up like a typical academic conference — with registration, abstract submission, concurrent paper sessions, and a poster session. Students’ abstracts are published together in a bound program.
Students will have the opportunity to either:
(1) give a 12-minute presentation on their work in a paper session with 3 or 4 other student presenters,
(2) design a poster describing their work for display in the poster session, or
(3) display their creative work in a gallery, an exhibition, or give a performance in a studio setting.
The Annual Centre RICE Symposium is sponsored by the Dean, Associate Dean, and a grant from Dr. John Barton.
