The virtual 2020 Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity is now going on.

As you might know, every year, for one day in April, Worcester State University's campus comes alive with student research and creative activity. Presentations, exhibitions, performances, and posters showcase the wonderful talents of Worcester State students as they share the amazing research and creative work they have done under the guidance of our devoted faculty members.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were not able to have our regular in-person program. So, the conference went online. Everyone in the Worcester State community can share in the impressive achievements of our graduate and undergraduate students. This year, from biotechnology to sociology, from history to occupational therapy, and everything in between, the projects are fascinating. To see the different projects online, go to

Please enjoy this welcome celebration of student achievement.
