Scholars Week

Murray State University is pleased to host Scholars Week, a university-wide celebration of undergraduate and graduate scholarship, research, and creative work, occurring each Fall and Spring semester. This event consists of oral presentations, poster sessions, exhibits and performance opportunities for individual undergraduate and graduate students from all colleges and schools to present either their independent or course-associated research, scholarly, or creative work.

The Office of Research and Creative Activity hopes instructors will encourage their students to participate in and interact with Scholars Week presentations. As an instructor, you can:

  • Submit a panel of students from a research-based class to present versions of their final assignments
  • Read abstracts of projects prior to Scholars Week and notify students of presentations relevant to your class
  • Assign questions to help students better engage with researchers on campus (view a set of sample questions)
