Annual Research and Creative Works Conference

Annual Research and Creative Works Conference

This annual celebration is a testament to the thriving academic environment and vibrant creative community experienced by students at Adelphi. Intellectual curiosity comes to life through hundreds of student presentations spanning disciplines from arts and humanities to natural and social sciences.

A Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity

One day each spring, we come together as a community to celebrate student scholarship and creativity during the annual Adelphi University Research and Creative Works Conference. Students get to share their hard work with their peers, faculty members and visitors. In the process, they build presentation and communication skills, learn to defend their work and engage with other academics, and, overall, develop an appreciation for scholarship and what it contributes to society. At the end of the day, we gather to recognize our award winners and congratulate our entire research community.

I’m a physicist, but I love going to a political science presentation. It’s so enriching to see things I, of course, think about, but don’t ever get an opportunity to talk about.

Matthew Wright, PhD Physics Professor | Adelphi Univeristy
