Showcasing Student Excellence

UAlbany will host its inaugural Showcase Day on Thursday, April 27, 2023, bringing together the entire University community to highlight the academic excellence our students exemplify through their research, scholarship, creative activities and experiential learning. 

This day-long event unites UAlbany's existing student showcases and conferences and invites students across all disciplines to present their work. The showcase will include:

  • Poster presentations

  • Research talks

  • Art exhibitions

  • Student performances

Showcase Day is an academic, classroom-free day for our students. Faculty and staff, as well as prospective students, donors, sponsors, legislators, community leaders and institutional partners, are also invited to attend. We hope you take advantage of this unique opportunity for connection and learning.

Events will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. around the Academic Podium, including the Lecture Center Concourse, the University Art Museum, Performing Arts Center and University Library, as well as in the Campus Center and ETEC.
