Participants present their work in a poster, oral presentation, art display, performance, or film screening.
All current faculty, staff, and students at UNO may participate. All academic disciplines are encouraged to participate. High school students may participate with a UNO sponsor.
Students will be eligible for prizes, including the Privateer Choice awards, Tolmas Prize awards, and cash prizes in every category. Those who place in their categories may be invited to the ULS Academic Summit.
Work needs to be completed under the auspices of the University of New Orleans. This includes but is not limited to course/group projects, funded/non-funded projects, and projects completed in conjunction with internships/partnerships that are part of a UNO collaborative.
If you are (1) a UNO faculty or staff member, (2) a UNO graduate student, or (3) a UNO alumni, we'd like you to help us assess our program participants.
Judges will be asked to evaluate participants' presentations using a standardized rubric. You cannot be a judge if you are participating as a presenter.
Registration to serve as a judge ends on October 25, 2019.
InnovateUNO is staffed by the UNO Office of Research—but we want your help! Whether you are a student or a member of the staff, faculty, or local community, we would appreciate your assistance with signing participants into the symposium and keeping the event moving.
Volunteers will receive an exclusive InnovateUNO t-shirt to wear during the event. You can sign up to be a volunteer even if you are presenting or judging.
Registration to serve as a volunteer ends on October 25, 2019.
The Office of Research, the Graduate School, and the Earl K. Long Library host this program. InnovateUNO is sponsored, in part, by the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust.
