12th Annual ‘[email protected]’ Begins Monday with 190 Presentations Scheduled

April 14, 2022


JONESBORO – Arkansas State University students will share their research and creative activity again this year through the 12th annual [email protected] Symposium, a spring semester hallmark at A-State since 2011.

[email protected]: A Symposium of Research, Scholarship & Creativity,” will take place in various rooms in the Carl R. Reng Student Union. At the same time, some of the sessions will be livestreamed on [email protected]’s YouTube channel.

[email protected] showcases the faculty-mentored works of high-achieving students from across all the university’s colleges and disciplines.

The symposium, Monday through Wednesday, April 18-20, will feature 190 presentations, including oral, poster, creative, and sales pitches, by approximately 240 undergraduate and graduate student presenters.

“This symposium represents the annual culminating event of A-State’s [email protected] program, which enhances opportunity throughout the year for student research and creativity and enriches co-curricular learning experiences in all disciplines,” stated Dr. Tom Risch, vice provost for Research and Technology Transfer. “We are thrilled to be back in person for this year’s event, which will have an enhanced impact after 2 years of being virtual.  We are employing some of the lessons of past years by having increased participation from our on-line students, which will be incorporated with a hybrid approach.”

Prominent external stakeholders and alumni will serve as volunteer judges, with awards to be announced during a livestreamed awards celebration at 4 p.m., Wednesday, April 20.

“We have great representation from our students this year, across several disciplines and including both undergraduate and graduate students,” noted Kari Harris, director of student research. “I am looking forward to meeting student researchers in person and learning more about the exciting variety of projects A-State students are working on.”

The program is a culmination of collaborative efforts by faculty mentors, chairs and deans of each of the colleges, working with Research and Technology Transfer along with University Advancement, KASU, ASU-TV, Marketing and Creative Services, Blackboard Support, the Student Research and Philanthropy Councils, and Assessment.

“The student works you will see this week are a testament to A-State’s strong mentorship and inclusivity provided by outstanding faculty research and creativity mentors,” Risch added.

Interested individuals may also access the presentations later on the [email protected] YouTube channel.
