Booth at this event.
A Pew Institute Co-Sponsored Event
The Research and Creativity Forum is a student led event hosted by the Graduate Student Association, the undergraduate student organization "INQUIRY," UM Citizens Board, the Graduate School, Division of Interdisciplinary Studies, and the Toppel Career Center.
The RCF was created to nurture young students in preparation for future presentations. In fact, many students use this opportunity as a "trial run" before they present at a national conference in their field. Additionally, there are a myriad of opportunities for experienced researchers to be be exposed to various community leaders, corporations, potential funding sources, and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration.
All presentations are evaluated by judges who are faculty or administrators. Judging criteria include presentation style, significance, originality, methodology, presentation quality, and oral presentation. The sum of the presentation scores will determine winners within several categories. Outstanding presentations will be honored with certificates, ribbons, and/or cash awards on the day following the forum at the RCF Banquet.
