Student Research Conference

The Student Research Conference (SRC) is an annual celebration of Marymount student scholarship and creative works. Both undergraduate and graduate students are invited to present their work. The 2021 SRC was held on April 21, 2021. Congratulations to the 104 students who participated in this event. Individual research / creative work presentations were followed by interdisciplinary student panel discussions of research areas with similar topical themes. 

See the full list of presentations for 2021 in the SRC archives tab on the left.  Zoom videos are available for some of the presentations and posted with the schedule.

Presentations were judged for clarity, impact, methodology, and ability to engage the audience. For each College, first and second place awards were given in both the undergraduate and graduate category.  The list of award winners, along with their presentation topics, are provided below.
