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 2020 Spring Research Symposium on Friday, April 3!

The Spring Research Symposium will be held in Brenau’s Downtown Center on Friday, April 3, 2020 and we are looking for outstanding projects to showcase from the Brenau Community. Proposals for both individual and group presentations, poster submissions and full panels will be considered. The Research Symposium Committee will be accepting Abstract submissions starting on January 13 and ending on February 7th.

The theme of this year’s Research Symposium is “Empowerment Through Inclusivity” and serves as the foundation for this year’s Round Table discussion. While we encourage submissions that touch on this year’s theme, it is not a requirement to be considered for inclusion.  All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to submit an Abstract to be reviewed for this year’s Research Symposium.

Submission is open to all Brenau Students, Faculty and Staff.  Abstracts should be no more than 250 words. Abstract submissions can be submitted via the Formstack Submission Form using the following link (

All Abstract submissions must be received by February 7 to be considered for the Spring Symposium.

We look forward to seeing the variety of quality projects that the Brenau community has in store for us.
