Scholars Week 2020

“Celebrating the Scholarship of Discovery, Integration, Application, Teaching & Learning, and Creative Endeavors across Eastern Kentucky University.”
Scholars Week celebrates the culture of scholarship, research, and creative endeavors. The week begins on April 6, 2020 and includes a diverse series of events highlighting the scholarly and creative achievements of students and faculty across Eastern Kentucky University.

Held annually every April, Scholars Week celebrates, showcases, and promotes the rich culture of faculty, student, and faculty-student scholarship, research, and creative endeavors. As such, Scholars Week supports the EKU University Strategic Plan 2020, especially 1.1.3: "Increase opportunities for faculty scholarship, research and creative endeavors, and faculty-student collaborations;" and 1.2.3: "Provide students the opportunity and support to participate in and receive recognition for research, creative, and academic endeavors." 

In response to public health concerns from COVID-19, however, on-ground Scholars Week events have been redesigned to fit an online format whenever possible. The 2020 Scholars Week features an abbreviated schedule, with one experience each day.
