The 8th annual Celebration of Student Scholarship and Creativity took place on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, in the Slavin Center. This event was a chance to showcase the excellent scholarly, creative, and service work that Providence College students are doing on campus, in the community, and indeed, around the world. The Celebration has grown each year, and features students from all class years and from many different departments and disciplines.
The annual event is inspired as a result of the College’s three-year Fostering a Culture of Student Engagement grant from the Davis Educational Foundation. The purpose of the grant is to deepen students’ engagement in their learning as a means of fulfilling the College’s central mission to promote, sustain, and enhance academic excellence.
The celebration is an important feature of the College’s Strategic Plan, in which student engagement is a critical step in our effort to enhance academic excellence through expanded experiential research, study, and service opportunities, and by recognizing students’ best scholarly and creative work.
