We expect this showcase to be another fun, inspiring day for the community to join us here on campus to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and the brilliance of the future that their work represents.” Provost James DuMond added, “I am excited to experience my first Academic Showcase as Provost, and am looking forward to viewing all the posters, research projects, and performances presented at this day-long event.”
