Brenau University Annual Research Symposium

Brenau University’s Research Symposium is an interdisciplinary presentation forum for research conducted by Brenau’s undergraduate and graduate students as well as by the Brenau faculty. The Research Symposium serves as an extension of the classroom and programs, explores creative approaches to emergent problems, and provides a venue for the distribution of research results and conclusions – offering opportunities for both learning and new interdisciplinary collaborations. Abstracts are published annually in the Brenau University Research Symposium Proceedings. Faculty, students, alumnae and alums are all welcome to contribute!


Now Accepting Abstract Submissions

For The

Spring Research Symposium!


Friday, April 5, 2019


Brenau University Downtown Center (301 Main St SW, Gainesville, GA 30501)

Abstract Submissions must be received between Thursday, January 3 and Friday, February 15, 2019 to be considered for inclusion in this year’s Symposium.

Our theme this year is “Expand Your Horizons” and faculty members from the Library and each of the Colleges will open the Symposium with a Round Table discussion about their experiences with interdisciplinary research and teaching, and how moving out of their comfort zone to collaborate with others outside of their field has influenced them.

While we encourage submissions that touch on this year’s theme, it is not a requirement to be considered for inclusion. All students and faculty are encouraged to submit an Abstract to be reviewed for this year’s Research Symposium.

Students need to complete the Abstract Submission Word Document below and give it to their project advisor for review and final submission.
