General Information

In 2008, a new tradition of celebrating and showcasing academic accomplishments was established through Research Day. Over the years, it has evolved into a week-long event filled with multidisciplinary presentations, demonstrations and lectures. At the University of the Incarnate Word, we take pride in our research and know that through our search for and communication of truth, we become stronger in educating “concerned and enlightened citizens within the global community.”

The Service Learning and Engaged Scholarship Showcase is held annually in conjunction with Research Week. UIW community members, faculty, students and staff are invited to share podium presentations or poster submissions that demonstrate their service learning and engaged scholarship. We seek best practices, examples, theories, scholarship and grant writing skills related to all aspects of service learning.
