Encouraging Your Students to Present
Celebration '11 is ideally suited to those students in your department who have conducted substantive research, written exceptional papers, and/or created interesting projects in the visual and performing arts.
- Students must apply individually, but they can team up with a group for an oral presentation panel. Or, if they've conducted scientific research as part of a team, all team members can present their work in any format - such as a research poster or a theatrical performance.
Students You Have Mentored in Research
If you have a student or students that you have mentored in their work, please consider inviting them. Not only does each student need a sponsor - but sponsoring students for Celebration '11 is a natural extension of doing research and creative work with them.
- By agreeing to sponsor a student, you are stating that their research/creative work is worthy of inclusion in Celebration '11 and will assist the student with presentation preparation.
Visit the Provost's Office for more information on support for Faculty-Student Collaboration.
Sponsoring Other Students
If a student approaches you who has done his/her research elsewhere -- such as during a study abroad program, off-campus internship, or REU -- we would ask that you serve as the student's sponsor, as long as you determine that the work is their own and that it meets with your standards,
- The student should note in his/her abstract where the work was conducted and who the original mentor was, in order to give the host institution's faculty member credit as well.
We need faculty and staff to serve as panel moderators/facilitators for presentation sessions that pertain to their areas of expertise.
If you're interested in volunteering, please contact email@example.com as soon as possible. We would truly appreciate it!
Attending Celebration: Faculty, Staff and Students
Faculty and staff are warmly invited and encouraged to attend Celebration '11. We also welcome your family members, as this is a Gettysburg College community event.
In addition, please urge all of your students to attend, even if they decide not to present this year.
- In this way, students can support their classmates and celebrate their achievements.
- What's more, Celebration '11 is a wonderful opportunity for first-year students to see what possibilities and experiences might be in store for them if they work hard.
Celebration '11 encourages all of our students to learn about and appreciate high achievement in disciplines other than their own.
