What is Academic Showcase?

Academic Showcase is a poster session that lets you share your recent original research, scholarship, and/or creative work with the WSU academic community.

The event highlights interdisciplinary collaboration. It is held on the Pullman campus.


Academic Showcase welcomes participation of WSU faculty, staff, and graduate/professional students from all disciplines, campuses, and Extension offices statewide.

Your original research, scholarship, or creative activity must meet all eligibility requirements outlined in the submission guidelines.

Undergraduate students

How to apply

  1. Review the submission guidelines.
  2. Submit an abstract of your work for Academic Showcase Committee review.

You may present only one abstract of your work as a primary or presenting author.

Review process

The Academic Showcase Committee typically reviews abstracts during the last week of January.
