What is the purpose of Intersections: SOURCE Symposium and Poster Session?
The SOURCE Symposium and Poster Session is an opportunity for all undergraduate students to present their research and creative projects to the university community. These projects may be current or recently completed projects. The SOURCE Symposium and Poster Session also is an opportunity for students not yet engaged in undergraduate research or creative endeavors to see the broad and diverse work that is being done across campus and learn from students about the value of undergraduate research and creative endeavors and ways to get involved. Finally, the SOURCE symposium and poster session allows the university community: faculty, staff, students, and administrators, to come together and celebrate the work of our undergraduate students and see how undergraduate student involvement in research and creative endeavors contributes to and enhances the undergraduate educational experience and Case as a research university.
Who can participate in the SOURCE Symposium and Poster Session?
All undergraduate students who are or have been involved in research and/or creative endeavors are encouraged to participate.
What are the benefits of participating?
Presenting your undergraduate research or creative endeavor project in a formal setting is a mark of accomplishment and is itself an educational experience. Some have said that research is never done until it is “out there” in presentation or article form. Presenting your work in a formal setting is an excellent educational experience and gives you the opportunity to speak about your work to and take questions from others who know your field well and from those who do not. You learn from both experiences. In addition, the experience is excellent preparation for graduate school, and you can include your participation on your resume and graduate school applications.
