CPP Student RSCA Conference

RSCA Horse: Student Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities

Welcome to the 9th Annual

Student RSCA Conference

March 6, 2021
Virtual Event with Zoom Meeting Rooms
Time: TBD

The Cal Poly Pomona Student Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities Conference (CPP Student RSCA Conference) is an annual event that provides an opportunity for our undergraduate and graduate students to share their original research, scholarly and creative activities. All disciplines are represented – this is an opportunity to see CPP students at their best. Students who participate in this conference have the opportunity to be selected to represent CPP at the annual CSU-wide research competition.

This event will be held synchronously with pre-recorded video presentations by student presenters followed by a live Q&A for each project. Projects will be grouped with discipline and topic into sessions up to 10 projects. There are two presentation formats students can chose from:

1) An Oral and Performance Presentation session with a 8-minute PowerPoint followed by a 3-minute Q&A.
2) A Poster and Creative Works Panel where each student gives a 2-minute presentation followed by a 2-minute Q&A Session per project.

The Michi and Walter Weglyn social justice session invites papers that address how social justice is considered in your research. What is the social, political, cultural, economic, technological and scientific impact of your research in promoting equity and justice? The Weglyn award will be given to one research paper that has a clear intersectional approach in addressing social justice broadly defined. Weglyn is especially interested in projects that addresses resistance, resilience, and perseverance through collective action. Five $100 awards will be given out to research projects from all majors and one $100 for performing arts research. All projects are welcome from all disciplines and all creative and performing art submissions must meet the requirement for RSCA. Possible examples:

  • An engineering student can work on research that gives access to clean water to impoverished communities. Addressing environmental racism and ecological inequalities is a for of social justice.
  • Students in social sciences or humanities may look at the growing Black Lives Matter movement and its impact on and identities.
  • Students in the performing arts may perform (music, theater, spoken word) write original poetry, short story, or create imagery (graphic design, paint, etc.) for consideration.

The conference application will open in early December 2020. Please subscribe to the OUR Mailing listserv for updates!
