Carlow University is as much a place for pursuing aspirations as it is for gaining inspiration. The real world offers a constant source of puzzles and mysteries that engage our campus community in scholarly inquiry. The achievements of Carlow’s faculty extend beyond the classroom and leave a mark on the world around us.

Outside of the classroom, the work of our faculty:

  • Can be viewed in presentations, industry and cultural events, and publications
  • Exemplifies academic leadership with every published article, book, art exhibit, event, discovery or breakthrough
  • Appears in books, periodicals, seminars, conferences, museums, galleries and public showcases 

Once a year (usually in April), Carlow students (undergraduate and graduate) are invited to share their scholarly projects with the Carlow community. Based on merit-based selection by their faculty sponsors, students are welcome to display their academic achievements in the format that best suits them, such as:

  • Posters
  • Presentations
  • Panel discussions
  • Portfolio displays
  • Creative expression sessions

Types of Presentations

There are 2 possible presentation formats:

Poster Physical/In-Person – Presenters will prepare and set up a poster in the indicated CSD location. They must be available for questions from the public in a specific time period on the day of the CSD meeting. Important: All poster presentations require physical presence

PPT Physical/In-Person – Presenter(s) will give a live presentation in the designated CSD room at the specified time. While there will be live audience in the room, the presentation will also be broadcast to all of the connected virtual audience.

Exceptionally, and only for those programs that are fully online or invited presenters from outside the Carlow community, it will be possible to participate in virtual sessions specifically setup for this purpose following a PPT virtual synchronous format.
PPT Virtual Synchronous – At the designated CSD presentation time, the presenter(s), who are NOT located in the CSD meeting site, will give the expected presentation virtually to all of the connected audience.

Carlow Scholars’ Day sessions take place mainly in a physical format where participants are present on campus. Physical exhibits are on display at the A.J. Palumbo Hall of Science and Technology.

Presenting at the Carlow Scholars’ Day is an opportunity for professionals to share their work and level of expertise, expand the vision and perspective of their respective fields, and receive valuable feedback from peers and the audience. This annual event is open to the general public and is free to all. Any Carlow University student is welcome to participate in this event.

 Follow these steps to participate:

  • Learn if your proposal has been accepted by the Carlow Scholars’ Day Committee.
