About the 2024 Research and Creative Achievement Conference

The 2024 Research and Creative Achievement Conference features and highlights original creative and innovative work by students, faculty and staff. Composed of exemplary work by both graduate and undergraduate students, the conference enables the Merrimack College community to benefit and learn from the scholarship of one another. 

Now in its upcoming tenth year, the conference provides our students with a number of opportunities, including:

  • experience presenting at an academic conference
  • exposure to research in fields they may not be aware of
  • direct mentorship from a faculty member
  • a well-rounded understanding of the entire research experience from start to finish

From formulating hypotheses to presenting finished work, the community gains additional scholarship and our students are proud to share their findings in original, creative ways. Attendees have the option to present their work through posters, videos, roundtable discussions and more.


A Culmination of Research and Creative Achievement

Our last conference on May 5, 2023, gathered together hundreds of students and faculty. All five schools were represented at the event where we highlighted a year of inspired work, dedication and creativity at Merrimack College.
