Festival of Excellence

The Festival of Excellence is Celebrating Academic and Creative Scholarship

Dear Participants and Mentors,

We are writing with the unfortunate news that the 2020 Festival of Excellence has been canceled due to COVID-19 and in line with President Scott Wyatt’s recent announcements regarding on-campus events and large gatherings.

We want to thank you for your willingness to share your research with the campus community. Each year the Festival of Excellence energizes SUU and celebrates student, faculty, and staff research, creative work, and service. It is always the highlight of our year and we look forward to continuing to celebrate undergraduate research in the future.

As the Festival of Excellence will not be taking place, poster printing and other preparations for the event have also been discontinued. However, we are exploring some possibilities to share your Festival of Excellence research in an online format. With that in mind, many of SUU’s online resources will be dedicated to the primary work of the University as many face-to-face courses convert to online education. We will keep you posted on any developments of that nature. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out.

Scott Knowles & Jacob Ward
Co-Directors, Festival of Excellence
