Student Research Opportunities

Student Academic Conference

Since 1994, Augustana has organized a symposium at the end of each term in which undergraduate students conducting independent work for credit can present their research findings.  Classes that have conducted CSL projects are able to present their community work in this context as well.

Why you should present at SAC

  1. Presenting your research allows you to share your findings with other students, faculty and community members. 
  2. Presenting at a conference is an important part of your professional development as well as providing you with valuable feedback on your work. 
  3. The Student Academic Conference (SAC) allows you to present what you are passionate about as well as help you deepen your understanding of your research. 
  4. SAC is a great place to network with your peers and professionals in your field of interest. 
  5. A presentation at the Student Academic Conference will look good on your resume or application for graduate school.

Presentations at SAC do not have to be limited to the presentation of a research paper.  SAC welcomes presentations in the form of: posters, art projects, performances, and oral presentations.  If you are not sure what type of presentation you would like to you do for SAC you can discuss it with Stacey Rempel in the LAB office.   

If you are interested in presenting at the SAC, contact Stacey Rempel before October 17, 2016.
