The Celebration of Scholarship and Learning represents an opportunity for the entire Towson University community to recognize the accomplishments of Honors College students. It is also a great way for students to build their resume and learn from the accomplishments of their peers.
The Fall 2019 Celebration of Scholarship and Learning and Honors Family Breakfast is on the morning Saturday, September 21, 2019 in the West Village Commons ballrooms. Time TBD. Preliminary information will be emailed to anticipated presenters in summer 2019 with more details following at the start of the fall term.
The Spring 2020 Celebration of Scholarship and Learning will be the afternoon of Saturday, March 7, 2020 in the Liberal Arts Building. Time TBD. Preliminary information will be emailed to anticipated presenters at the beginning of the spring academic term.
The Celebration of Scholarship and Learning is held twice a year: once in the fall during TU Family Weekend (typically in October) and again in early March during the Towson University-Baltimore County Public School Model United Nations Conference. Honors students who present posters at these events have recently completed or are in the process of completing an experiential learning experience for which they will earn Honors credit, such as conducting research, studying abroad, undertaking a service-learning course, or completing an internship.
Honors students may also submit proposals for poster presentations on any topic and in any field. Topics for posters may include but are not limited to:
Posters are reviewed by a panel of judges and awards will be given for different categories of presentations. The award-winning poster presenters are encouraged to present at regional and national Honors conferences, professional conferences in their field, and Towson University events such as the Student Research & Creative Inquiry Forum and TU4U.
