President's Showcase of Excellence

President’s Showcase of Excellence Goes Digital for 2020

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the President’s Showcase of Excellence, planned for April 17 will be reformatted. In place of an in-person celebration, we will create for the first time an alternative online experience. We intend to uphold the original purpose of the President’s Showcase: to share and celebrate stories of success, innovation and best practice from across the University. We will just do this in a different format.

The event traditionally features a two-hour poster session where our campus community comes together to connect, share and learn from one another. Last year, nearly 100 poster exhibitors and 500 faculty and staff attended the event. In the spirit of continuous innovation, we will share the 2020 President’s Showcase of Excellence posters online in pdf format. 

Registration to participate in the newly formatted showcase remains open until April 4.

All of the 2020 posters will be posted online on April 17, and we will highlight several of the posters via various communication channels throughout the year.

The announcement of the 2020 Bold Idea winners will be delivered electronically in a message from President Castro the week of April 20.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to bringing the 2020 President’s Showcase of Excellence to life in a new format this year and returning to our tradition in 2021.
