What is Research Exhibition?

Research Exhibition is an opportunity for Central Penn Students to show off the research skills they are developing from all the hard work they have been doing in their classes.

For 2022 we will be returning to the Conference Center in ATEC for face-to-face poster presentations on June 2nd from 3 - 5 pm. There is also the option to present online either through TEAMS or with VoiceThread.

The top scorers will be announced on June 6th.

Library Director, Diane Porterfield, recently appeared on the Knightly News Podcast discussing the 2022 Research Exhibition. Listen to episode #151 here.
