The Symposium of University Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE)


What is SOURCE?

SOURCE, short for Symposium of University Research and Creative Expression, strives to provide a university-wide opportunity for Central students to present their mentored research, scholarship, and creative works. SOURCE strives to create an equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment that applauds and values demonstrations of all disciplines and experience levels. SOURCE simulates the professional environment in which you may find yourself presenting within your discipline later in your career. 

Get Involved! 

SOURCE is designed to include a variety of students and community members in a plethora of ways! SOURCE is for everyone, and we hope that you will join us in some way!
