SSIR Capstone Project Presentations

At the end of the academic year, students in the Sophomore Scholars in Residence communities present their research and group projects to the University community. These capstone presentations provide an opportunity for students to showcase their significant achievements beyond regular classroom work, as well as reflect upon their SSIR experience. These achievements may take a variety of forms, including results of research activities, community-based learning projects, creative achievements, performances, digital storytelling, documentary films, or other media.
