This year our poster competition will focus on the evolution of diversity, equity, and inclusion in different fields of study. A total of 15 student posters will be accepted, and each college is encouraged to promote student submissions in at least one category. Only a select number of presentations will be accepted from each college to promote inclusivity and fairness to all students. There will be two areas of submission: Research Study Poster & Research Presentation Poster.

The Research Study poster presentation should include a statement of the problem, objectives of the project or research, the methodology used to solve the problem or implement the program, the major findings or outcomes and their significance, and a conclusion. There should be logical research sequence: i.e., introduction (research questions/hypotheses), development (data collection/analysis), and conclusion. The conclusion(s) should be related to the project findings.
The Research Presentation poster should include an introduction of your topic, objectives of the research, a review of the literature regarding your topic, implications for the profession based on your research, and a conclusion.
Posters will be setup in the Bologna Performing Arts Center on March 28, 2022. Awards will be announced on March 29, 2022. If the conference is impacted by COVID-19, the posters will be moved to a virtual format and instructions will be provided for how that transition will take place.
