Princeton Research Day is a celebration of the research and creative endeavors by our undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and other nonfaculty researchers.

The campuswide event serves as an opportunity for researchers and artists to share their work with the community and includes research from the natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, the arts and humanities. The program features talks, posters, performances, art exhibitions, demonstrations, digital presentations and an awards ceremony for outstanding contributions. It has been held annually since 2016. See past presentations.

The event is free and open to the public.

Princeton Research Day is a collaborative initiative between the offices of the Dean of the College, the Dean of the Graduate School and the Dean for Research, with support from the Dean of the Faculty and Office of the Provost.
