About the Student Research and Creativity Conference


Eastern New Mexico University's annual Student Research and Creativity Conference is designed to showcase the research and creative projects being done by undergraduate and graduate students in all fields across campus.  Students present their work in professional poster, display,  performance, and paper sessions and are critiqued and judged by interdisciplinary groups of faculty members.  Through this process, students can see how their work compares with that of other students, get feedback on their work and presentations, and practice their professional presentation skills.  A cash award will be given to one student in each group.  Students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to attend the presentation sessions.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2019 Student Research and Creativity Conference on Wednesday, April 3!  199 students made 251 presentations in 21 discipline fields.  81 faculty and staff members served as judges and 48 students received cash awards.  The conference proceedings have been posted - see the link in the right-hand column.


The 2020 Student Research and Creativity Conference 

will be held on Wednesday, April 1.

The entry form will open on November 4, 2019. 

The entry deadline is February 21, 2020.



Why Participate? Why Participate?


Why should students participate in this conference?


♦ Students will be able to compare their work to that of other students on campus.

♦ Students will get valuable presentation experience.  This presentation can serve as a dress rehearsal for other presentations the student will give in class, at a professional conference, or on the job.

♦ Students will get feedback on their work and their presentation.

♦ Participation makes a good entry on the student's resume or CV which will be seen by graduate schools, funding agencies, scholarship committees, and potential employers.

♦ This is a relatively small event with a friendly audience, so it's a good place to practice for students who are uncomfortable doing public presentations.

♦ Conference participation is free, unlike participation at many professional conferences.

♦ Students will be invited to the free banquet the evening of the conference.

♦ Cash prizes will be awarded.
