About University Research Day

St. Albert’s Day is celebrated in honor of St. Albert Magnus, or Albert the Great, who was a scientist, philosopher, and theologian, and served as a mentor to St. Thomas Aquinas. During his lifetime, St. Albert the Great composed a veritable encyclopedia which contained scientific treatises on almost every subject. His life and writings emphasized the importance of experiment and investigation.

Creighton University Undergraduate, Graduate, and Professional Students are encouraged to submit an abstract for their research, present a poster, or give a platform presentation. All submissions are accepted. Presentations (both poster and platform) will be judged during the morning or afternoon session.
