Academic Showcase 2020
dives deep into “Water”

Franklin Pierce University will celebrate the scholarly and creative work of students and faculty during the 11th annual Academic Showcase on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 on our Rindge Campus. Throughout the day, students will attend poster sessions, panels, roundtable discussions, musical and theatrical performances, and more related to this year’s theme of “Water.”  Our own Doug Carty, Director of Raven Recreation, will present on the renovation of the recreation area on Pearly Pond, and many student presentations will flow from the Climate Action Group.

Academic Showcase will again include a musical performance by alumnus Michael Brown, as well as the popular “Raven Brain Bowl.” The Brain Bowl is based on old television quiz shows such as “College Bowl,” and pits teams of Franklin Pierce students against each other in a winner-take-all contest with questions drawn from the range of disciplines represented in the Franklin Pierce curriculum.


Academic Showcase

“Every year at Academic Showcase, our students and faculty challenge themselves to find creative ways to research and present their work in a wide variety of disciplines,” said President Kim Mooney. “This year’s theme of “Water” will be particularly meaningful now, as our community considers our roles as users, stewards and conservators of our own Pearly Pond, as well as the planet we inhabit. I’m looking forward to another energizing and inspiring day for the community to join us here on campus to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and faculty.”
