Week of Undergraduate Excellence

Call for Abstracts for Poster Presentations

The Week of Undergraduate Excellence seeks to highlight and celebrate undergraduate excellence and accomplishments in research, scholarship, and creative work from across the University. All undergraduate students are invited and encouraged to present academic and creative work throughout the week-long celebration.

Abstract submission opens: Monday, January 13, 2020

Abstract submission closes: Monday, March 30, 2020

Students will have the opportunity to present their work in poster presentation format during the 2020 Week of Undergraduate Excellence. Details about the date, duration, and location of poster session(s) will be made available when students are notified of acceptance. Posters should not exceed 30”x40. Display boards will be provided.

Please note: Students interested in giving oral presentations should consider presenting at Nerd Night @ Drexel U during the Week of Undergraduate Excellence. Click here to learn more about Nerd Night.

The size and scope of the Week of Undergraduate Excellence precludes any type of peer review of abstracts, and virtually all student submissions are likely to be accepted for presentation. Consequently, each student presentation must be sponsored by a faculty mentor, and the organizing committee will rely on faculty mentors to work with their student(s) to ensure that abstracts are correct, complete, and the result of eligible work. If students wish to present scholarly work that has been conducted during an off-campus experience and his/her mentor is from a different institution, the student should identify a Drexel faculty member to co-sponsor and support the presentation.

Abstract Submission

  • Deadline for receiving abstracts is Monday, March 30, 2020 (5:00 pm EST). Submissions will open on this website on Monday, January 13, 2020.
  • Each abstract should provide a general 200-word summary of the research, including a thesis and 1-2 resources. The abstract should reflect the professional format associated with scholarly work in that specific discipline.
  • Only one submission will be considered for each individual listed as first author.
  • The submission form will require that students submit an abstract and a letter of support from his/her mentor.
