The 16th annual Student Research and Creativity Celebration will take place Friday, May 2, and Saturday, May 3.
One of SUNY Buffalo State’s great traditions, the Student Research and Creativity Celebration allows undergraduate and graduate students in all academic disciplines to present their preliminary and completed research and creative activities in a student-friendly, supportive environment.
This year’s celebration includes more than 340 presentations, performances, and art exhibitions that feature the work of more than 450 Buffalo State students. Over 125 faculty members are serving as mentors.

"The inclusion of students across all academic disciplines places Buffalo State among those institutions that value the teacher-scholar model and consider undergraduate research as a transformative and high impact educational practice and one of the best ways to engage all students,” said Jill Singer, professor of earth sciences and science education and director of undergraduate research.
Interim President Howard Cohen and Provost Dennis Ponton will host an opening reception from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. Friday in the E. H. Butler Library lobby. Research papers and poster sessions will be presented Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the library, while performances and artistic events will take place in the library and in the Donald Savage Theater and Communication Building's Flexible Theatre.
Oral presentations will be divided by academic groupings into six sessions throughout the day. Eight hour-long poster sessions, each with a diverse representation of disciplines, will take place concurrently with the oral presentations.
A number of students presenting this weekend have already shared their research findings and artworks at conferences and juried exhibits held across the U.S. Several students recently represented Buffalo State at the SUNY-wide “Innovative Exploration Forum: Undergraduate Research” held in Albany on April 1. Recipients of fellowships awarded last year in the 15th round of the Undergraduate Summer Research Program also will be presenting their research, including Aaron Masters, who recently performed in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.
All events are free and open to the public.
