Sustainability Week: Creating a Culture of Sustainability where Blue and Gold meet Green


This conference, the first of its kind at Southern University, is open to the public and will feature work by hundreds of students across the disciplines from the Southern University System. These students will present original research and artistic endeavors, with a sustainability focus, in poster sessions, visual exhibits, and creative performances. In addition, there will be seminars for students on career development, sustainability and the workforce, and graduate and/or doctoral study preparation.

We appreciate your interest in presenting at the Southern University Undergraduate and Graduate Research Conference. To submit an abstract or proposal for presentation review, you must first register for the conference, complete the online form for abstracts or proposals, and submit it electronically by Friday, February 28, 2013. A review committee will determine whether your abstract or proposal has been accepted for presentation and you will be notified by Friday, March 15, 2013.
