College of Global Futures Student Showcase 2021

Friday April 23, 2021
2:30-4:00 p.m. AZ Time

Each semester, we explore the research and projects of our College of Global Futures students with a Student Showcase. This Student Showcase features undergraduate and graduate research, applied projects, theses and dissertations. The Showcase will include students from School for the Future of Innovation in Society, the School of Sustainability and the School for Complex Adaptive Systems.

The Student Showcase will be virtual this semester. This webpage will be updated with the presentation schedule and links to the presentation Zoom rooms in the days leading up to the Showcase.

Participation Process

COLLEGE OF GLOBAL FUTURES STUDENTS: Complete the “Intent to Participate” form by April 1, 2021. Graduate students are expected to submit an abstract of 200-300 words about the research or applied project they will be presenting about.

Undergraduate students: you are automatically approved to participate upon the submission of your “intent to participate” and submission of your presentation. Graduate and PhD students: you will be notified by April 9, 2021 if your abstract submission has been approved.

Presentation submissions due by April 19 at 11 p.m. AZ time. *Exceptions Granted Upon Approval*

School for the Future of Innovation in Society Undergraduate Research Program (SURF) participants will submit their PowerPoint presentations via their Canvas course.

All other presentations are to be submitted using the submit presentation link above.

We encourage the project information to be in a slide show format instead of a poster. This will make it easier to see and present the project information via Zoom.

The Student Showcase presentation schedule and Zoom links will be announced by April 21.
