The Festival of Excellence is Celebrating Academic and Creative Scholarship

(Update 4/10/2020):

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, for the safety of the campus community, Festival of Excellence 2020 was canceled. However, we still wish to acknowledge the individuals who intended to present, and allow others a glimpse of the academic and creative scholarship at SUU in the 2019-20 school year.

(Update 3/25/2020): Dear Participants and Mentors,

We are writing to let you know that Interim Provost Eves has decided that in light of everything going on with COVID-19, “there will not be any opportunity through the Festival of Excellence for students to present their work.” Thank you so much for your willingness to participate, we look forward to seeing your work in future years.

Sincerely,

(Update 3/12/2020): 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.

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