Faculty Information

Celebration is Gettysburg College's annual all-campus, all-disciplines Colloquium on Undergraduate Research, Creative Activity, and Community Engagement.

Every student participant must have a faculty or administrator mentor.  In fact, mentor participation is instrumental in the success of Celebration

Your involvement can happen in a number of ways -- from mentoring student participants, to moderating a panel, to attending the event. Perhaps most importantly, Celebration offers an ideal venue in which to showcase your faculty-student collaboration efforts while you support your collaborating students.

NEW for 2018, students are no longer required to provide a full abstract but rather a description of the project.  This will allow the students to register before the conclusion of project. Please encourage them to do so.

Learn more about the myriad opportunities for mentor participation.
