Concord University celebrates the scholarly accomplishments of its students at the annual CU Research Festival each spring semester. The event allows Concord University students to present their research in either paper or poster format and interact with fellow students, faculty and community guests. The CU Research Festival is hosted by the McNair Scholars and Psychology Programs.
CU Research Festival also features a Graduate and Professional School Fair with representatives from many regional institutions, such as Marshall University, West Virginia State University, Virginia Tech, University of North Carolina – Greensboro, University of North Carolina – Pembroke, Hollins University, Pikeville College of Osteopathic Medicine, Radford University, WV College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Concord University. Students are able to interact with representatives that provide information about their graduate school and professional programs.
