2016 Student Workshops

This workshop series is intended to help students develop professional skills in general and, more specifically, prepare for the annual WKU Student Research Conference in the spring semester.

The workshop series is for undergraduate and graduate students of all disciplines. Workshops, presented by WKU faculty, are open to all students.

How to Write an Abstract

The first step to participating in the Student Research Conference is submitting a brief abstract of your work. Not sure where to start? This workshop will explain how to effectively describe your research or creative project in 200 words. We will cover what information to include, what to avoid, and how to structure this important document. At the end of this workshop, you will have the tools you need to write your own abstract for the February 19 deadline.
