Student Research Symposium

Thank you for a wildly successful 2024 Student Research Symposium! We appreciate everyone who presented, attended, volunteered at, and helped organize this remarkable event… we are already looking forward to seeing you next year!

The Student Research Symposium is a forum that showcases outstanding student scholarship and research by students at Montclair State University. The Symposium provides a venue for sharing research with the academic community, peers and the greater community through poster presentations.

Open to all current Montclair State University undergraduate and graduate students, the Student Research Symposium aims to promote interdisciplinary research and collaboration in the hope of instilling in our students the importance of exploring issues from multiple perspectives. Proposals that cross boundaries among disciplines are thus encouraged.

Participants will prepare a single poster that summarizes the overall project through its research questions, methods and conclusions. During the session, authors will be required to be available at their poster to answer questions and explain their project to audience members. Projects where the major points are evident through charts and graphs are best suited to this format. The poster should not require any audiovisual support. View the Poster Guidelines and Requirements to learn more about poster presentations.
