Research Showcase

The University of Denver's Research & Scholarship showcase welcomes DU community members to join us in admiration of the exemplary scholarship of our graduate and undergraduate students.

In response to the pandemic health and safety guidelines, we are hosting this event on our website and over Zoom to allow for maximum participation from our students, faculty, staff, and community partners. Take part in the event by looking over student projects and visuals here or listening in on a Zoom presentation session (schedule below). Zoom details will be available upon request via e-mail at uap-researchshowcase@du.edu and sent directly to event participants prior to the event date. We ask that if you wish to listen to Zoom presentations that you arrive promptly to prevent any distractions. Thank you for supporting student research!
