Princeton Research Day 2018

Princeton Research Day 2018

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. 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 Faculty, the Dean of the Graduate School and the Dean for Research, with support from the Office of the Provost.
