Student Scholar Showcase

About the WKU Student Scholar Showcase 

The WKU Student Scholar Showcase previously known as the WKU student Research Conference showcases scholarly activities of graduate and undergraduate students of diverse disciplines from across the main and regional campuses. An annual tradition since 1970, the conference has provided opportunities for thousands of students to present talks, performances, posters, exhibits, and displays on their research and creative endeavors.

The 54th Annual WKU Student Scholar Showcase will be held on April 6, 2024.

WKU has a rich history of scholarly engagement of students. Scholarly activity has been defined as original and creative work that is shared with colleagues and the general public. Research is a form of scholarly activity that involves the discovery of new knowledge. Other forms of scholarship include the development of new technologies, methods, materials or uses; the integration of knowledge that leads to new understanding; and artistry that creates new insights and interpretations. As demonstrated by the past Student Research Conferences, students significantly enrich their academic experiences at WKU by engaging in scholarly activity.
