Spelman College recently hosted its 35th annual Research Day – a campus-wide celebration of the depth of our students’ intellectual curiosity. Classes were cancelled to allow the whole campus to join in celebrating the students’ scholarly and creative excellence.

Every year, Spelman takes pride in spotlighting the extraordinary scholarship and creative endeavors of our talented undergraduate students. Research Day reflects the breadth of scholarly engagement on campus, exemplified by the 30 different categories of fields/topics. Beginning that morning, 276 students showcased cutting-edge research projects to a team of over 150 judges. Below is a list of Spelman scholars and creatives who placed first for each category.

“Spelman’s tagline is ‘a choice to change the world,’ and Research Day illustrates well the depth of excellence of our undergraduate students who are mentored and prepared by our world-class faculty to go out into the world as scholars and leaders,” said Dr. Tasha Inniss, associate provost for research at Spelman College. “We in the Office of Research, Innovation, and Collaboration (ORIC) are always honored to organize this showcase of our students’ achievements and humbled by the contributions of so many internal and external partners.”
