Graduate Research and Creative Works Showcase

A female student in the lab

The Graduate Research and Creative Works Showcase is an annual exhibition of the diverse work of SF State’s innovated and talented graduate students. Each year we host more than 150 graduate exhibitors whose presentations typically come in the form of a poster display that depicts the purpose, methods, and results of their research or creative projects. This year the Graduate Research and Creative Works Showcase will be held virtually!

This event is an excellent opportunity to share your work with the broader academic community, win prizes, and build your résumé or curriculum vitae.

The 2021 Graduate Research and Creative Works Showcase is going virtual! The virtual event will be on March 4, 2021.

The Showcase is a unique opportunity for students to showcase their research and scholarly work to friends and family, community members, and research partners. Below you will find a timeline of events and deadlines pertinent to interested Showcase presenters, best practices for individual and group presentations, and information to register for the Graduate Research and Creative Works Showcase.
