WELCOME TO THE 17TH ANNUAL UNIVERSITY OF MARY WASHINGTON RESEARCH AND CREATIVITY DAY VIRTUAL SYMPOSIUM, SPRING 2023!
This year we are mostly back to in-person presentations on the Fredericksburg campus, but you will be able to access some virtual presentations on this site, as well as see the schedule of presenters and events for our Research and Creativity Day Symposium.
On the last day of classes for the spring semester–April 21, 2023–students and faculty will gather in the Hurley Convergence Center, as well as in other spaces across campus, to present the results of their scholarly research and creative endeavors over the past academic year.
We invite everyone—students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, and other university friends—to browse the presentations published on this website to see student projects and performances from across the university, organized on the menu above by college, department, student name, and category of presentation. We hope you will not only take a look, but also take the time to comment directly to the various projects by our students with your questions and words of encouragement to recognize and celebrate their hard work and achievements! All are also welcomed to attend the in-person events on campus on the 21st.
To comment, just click on the project title following one of the menus above, and fill out the required information. Comments will be open until midnight, May 1st, 2023.
Congratulations and thank you to all our student presenters and their faculty mentors for their accomplishments!
