Research Week

UNK’s Research Week is an annual event held each spring for students in all disciplines to present their scholarly work. Students’ research accomplishments and the important role faculty play as mentors are both highlighted. Any UNK student engaged in mentored research or creative activity is eligible and encouraged to participate, even if their work was not funded through UNK.

Presentations include oral presentations (broadcasted via Zoom), virtual poster presentations, poster gallery, musical performances, and art exhibitions. Poster and oral presentations are judged and awards are given at a reception at the end of the event.
