Recognizing RSCE at WP  

The presentations and activities included in EXPLORATIONS represent the research, scholarly and creative (RSCE) pursuits of WP’s faculty, students or others.  Core activities include sessions sponsored by WP’s colleges, departments or committees, Honors Week events, the Undergraduate Research Symposium, and the Cheng Library Authors Reception.  We encourage anyone who has developed an RSCE-related seminar or conference, invited an outside speaker, organized an end-of-year student capstone presentation, or scheduled a film, performance or exhibition to join as a partner with EXPLORATIONS.

EXPLORATIONS was known as University Research and Scholarship Day, and then Week, from 1999 to 2015.
