I am pleased to invite you to participate in the East Carolina University Research and Creative Achievement Week (RCAW). The week of March 23-27, 2015, has been set aside to highlight the extraordinary accomplishments of our students in research and creative activities. It is the hope of the organizing committee that you will attend, as much as your time allows, in order to see and hear what our students have achieved. In addition, we hope that you will strongly encourage your students to attend. The event is sponsored by a partnership of these entities: Division of Academic Affairs, Division of Health Sciences, Brody Graduate Student Association, Graduate and Professional Student Senate, Office of Undergraduate Research, Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, Graduate School, and Division of Research & Graduate Studies.
Research and Creative Achievement Week is a showcase of graduate and undergraduate student research and creative activities that are taking place here at ECU. There will be over 375 student presentations, an impressive number that reflects the current growth in research and creative activities at ECU in a variety of fields and disciplines. Oral and poster presentations will take place on Monday, March 23 (Graduate Presentation Day); Tuesday, March 24 (Postdoctoral Scholar presentations); and Wednesday, March 25 (Undergraduate Presentation Day) with most posters on display for an additional day each. In addition, we have online presentations for both undergraduate and graduate students.
This year, we are making an emphasis on student and student-faculty collaborative work. The Honors College Research Poster Showcase is a new event to be held on Tuesday evening.
The International Scholars Symposium will take place on Tuesday afternoon. The College of Education Faculty and Student Research Showcase will be on Wednesday afternoon. The Scholar-Teacher Awards and Symposium at which faculty will be recognized for the integration of research into their teaching will be held on Thursday, March 26. The whole week is capped off with the announcement of the student and postdoctoral scholar award winners at noon on Friday, March 27.
Please consider encouraging your classes to attend specific discipline-related oral student presentations on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday or to view the poster presentations Monday through Thursday.
