Make sure to put the anniversary group photo on your calendar for Friday, August 30 at 1:00 p.m. by the statue! We will be passing out 50th Anniversary “Make History” t-shirts to everyone who comes out to form the numerals “50” on the mallway, and a poster-sized commemorative print will be available to everyone who participates. Ten years ago when we did this, it was snowing. We will go out on a limb to guarantee this will not be the case for our 50th anniversary souvenir photo!

Franklin University has extended the abstract submission deadline to August 30 for its inaugural Scholarship Forum: From the Classroom to the Field and Beyond: Poster Presentations. The forum, which will be held on Franklin’s main campus on September 25, will showcase the innovative and important scholarly contributions from a variety of fields and disciplines by students, faculty, alumni, and community partners.
Capturing the essence and importance of holding this forum, keynote speaker John Carey, Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents, will share his insights on the “Vision for Higher Education.”
Community partners, faculty, and students are encouraged to illustrate their work and research in a poster-style session that will disseminate knowledge and discoveries beyond the individual and program in order to benefit the entire university community. Abstract solicitation is currently underway and will run through August 30.
Faculty and students may submit abstracts of projects, capstones, thesis projects, or any research or substantial project in which they analyzed information in a manner that generated synthesized conclusions or hypotheses. All presentations must be in poster formats and presenters must be available for comments and questions during the September 25 poster session.
Excellence in several categories will be recognized including, Outstanding Student Submission, Faculty Adjunct Submission, Faculty Submission, and Excellence in Scholarship. Accepted abstracts will appear in a booklet distributed during the event.
Providing enhanced exposure for all accepted presentations, a post-event news release will be distributed that includes links to all of the accepted abstracts. In addition, a $100 raffle will be held for those participating during the poster presentation segment.
For more information, interested participants are encouraged to visit www.franklin.edu/scholarship-forum for guidance on abstract writing and poster development, as well as to submit an abstract.
