Submission Process

Students interested in submitting to present at the CBU Student Research Colloquium can do so on this page. Before you submit, please review the abstract scoring rubric and ensure that your submission conforms to the submission requirements.

This colloquium focuses on the presentation of empirical research. Empirical research can be quantitative or qualitative, as long as it conforms to the accepted standards for this type of research. Although important to the progress of science, literature reviews, proposed studies, and theoretical discussions are not accepted for this colloquium. Thus, any presenter with a submission without data will not be eligible to participate. If you do not have data at the time of submission, but you have a plan to have collected and analyzed that data by the colloquium date, please make that clear in your submission below.

All submissions are reviewed in a faculty-led peer-review process. After this review, you will receive notification of your submission decision via email. Please review any comments provided by the peer review team, regardless of whether your submission was accepted for presentation. This colloquium is an important part of your learning and development as a researcher; the goal of the feedback is to directly contribute to this growth. Notification typically occurs within 3 weeks of the submission deadline. (This may vary for different participating schools/colleges.)

If you are invited to present at the conference, there are a few things you need to know. Most invitations will be for a poster presentation, but some of the top-scoring submissions may be invited to give an oral presentation. So, make sure you use the appropriate template for your poster or your oral presentation. You should dedicate time to practice your presentations and get feedback from fellow students and faculty. (Note that these templates are for the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. If you are in a different school/college, you should check with your faculty for the appropriate templates.) 

For this colloquium, posters are to be 2’ x 3’ and in APA format. You can check out this resource, as well as others in the research resource section of this website. Students can print their posters at the Print and Copy Center or at ASCBU. Plan to have your poster submitted for printing a week prior to the event to be sure it’s printed in time. You have two options for printing posters.  

  1. ASCBU can print posters 9 a.m.–3:45 p.m., closed weekends. Undergraduates ONLY can print posters for free at ASCBU (2 per semester). Graduate students will pay approximately $25. 
  1. The Print and Copy Center prints posters for $2 per sq. ft. (approximately $12 total) for all students (graduate and undergraduate). They are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays.

The night of the event, make sure you come at least 30 minutes before the event starts. Come dressed professionally and know where to go and when to be there. Check back here for additional details.
