Creative Activity and Research Day (CARD)

Student explaining research presentation to CARD attendee

Each spring, the College of Arts and Sciences hosts the annual Creative Activity and Research Day (CARD). Typically, research is conducted by an undergraduate or graduate student in collaboration with a faculty mentor that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline. Each year students showcase their research with posters, videos of performances and talks given by students detailing their scholarly activities.

10th Annual CARD Day

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to university and city-wide mandates the onsite event has unfortunately been cancelled and we are working to hold CARD remotely. Please check back frequently for information as the CARD team is evaluating how to celebrate the hard work of our students while we practice social distancing.
