CHPSW Research Day


The CPH Research Day is a college-wide event that showcases research in health and social work conducted by students who are working with mentorship from or in collaboration with faculty advisors. The event also serves as a training experience for students, since a critical element of research is dissemination of findings and interaction with professional colleagues. There will be citation awards for meritorious posters and a “Dean’s Award for Research Excellence.”

2014 CPH Research Day Schedule

Presentation Format: 

Presentations will use a poster format. Posters report research findings using brief written statements and graphic elements, such as photographs, charts, graphs, or diagrams mounted on a poster board (acceptable dimensions forthcoming). Posters will be displayed in a morning (9:00 – 11:00am) or afternoon (12:00 – 2:00pm) session. Authors are expected to attend their assigned poster session to discuss their work with faculty judges and other audience members

Who is eligible?

Graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in the College of Health Professions and Social Work. Faculty collaborators and post-docs are welcome but the student must be the lead author. Students may have a proxy present to discuss their work if they absolutely cannot attend the research day (e.g., a co-author or faculty advisor).
