DU Research & Scholarship Showcase


The DU Research & Scholarship Showcase is a unique opportunity for students to showcase their research and scholarly work to friends and family, community members, and research partners. In order to make the most out of this opportunity, it is recommended that interested undergraduate and graduate students make use of the workshops and resources made available to them. Below you will find a timeline of events and deadlines pertinent to interested Showcase presenters, best practices for individual and group presentations, and information to register for the DU Research & Scholarship Showcase.

Who should I contact if I have an ADA accommodation to request?

How should I present if my project is a performance or creative work?

If your project is a creative work (such as a musical piece, visual art, performance, etc.) you could have a recording of your musical performance for attendees to listen to or turn it into a Prezi to help include context and the piece in one place.

Since the event is virtual, do I need to make a poster?

Students will not be asked to make a physical poster this year. We ask that you make a Prezi presentation that can easily be shared via Twitter. For information on how to make a Prezi, check out their support page
