The Minds of Marshall Academic Festival

On April 23-24, 2010 Marshall University will be hosting the first university-wide celebration of student learning. All students and faculty, alumni, and potential students are invited to attend. During these two days students from all departments, divisions, and colleges will have an opportunity to share their work with this larger audience through scheduled events.

An event is any activity that demonstrates student learning at Marshall University at the undergraduate or graduate level. Events will include everything from formal research papers to demonstrations, presentations, and performances. Events will occur all over campus.

The timing of the festival was designed to coincide with Alumni Weekend, an open house for prospective students, Green White Day, and the College of Science and the College of Liberal Arts research conferences.

This webpage will be used initially to help participants generate their individual schedules. After the festival any student work that can be captured electronically can be published to the webpage. This resource will be available for a full academic year and will serve as a university portfolio of student work.

Originally called the Academic Festival, The Minds of Marshall Festival was renamed through a student competition. Robert G. Adkins submitted the winning name.
