Announcing the
40th Annual University-Wide Research Symposium, 2018

April 2, 2018 - April 6, 2018


The Annual University-Wide Research Symposium at Tennessee State University (TSU) is a university forum to recognize and
commemorate excellence in student, faculty, and staff research. Further, it is a platform for students to present findings from ongoing and developed research. The symposium allows students to gain exposure and experience as either oral or poster presenters in an evaluative setting. The symposium serves as a foundation to provide students with authentic experiences in presenting their research before advancing to regional, national, and international research symposia and prior to professional careers.

For this juried competition TSU students of all  majors are fully  encouraged to submit abstracts by February 28, 2018. (Final extension) Guest speakers and judges will include national research agency personnel, military research personnel, academicians, business leaders and local artists. Your research is the best resume. Consider this your invitation to participate and to show the world what TSU students are capable of when given a challenge.
