Academic Showcase

Forum for sharing research with the WSU community

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. Though traditionally held on the Pullman campus, this year it will be held online.


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.

Graduate and professional students

As a graduate or professional student, you may submit abstracts to BOTH Academic Showcase and the GPSA Research Exposition. However, you may ultimately participate in just one of these events.

To present at Academic Showcase, you will need a faculty/staff co-author or sponsor.

To participate in GPSA Research Exposition, you must be enrolled at the Pullman campus. GPSA Research Exposition participants compete for $9,600 in scholarships.

Undergraduate students

If you are engaged in mentored research, scholarship, and creative activities, you can share your work and compete for awards at Showcase for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (SURCA).

Academic Showcase is not open to undergraduate students.


How to register

  1. Review the submission guidelines.
  2. Submit an abstract of your work.

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

Archive your research

Research Exchange is a digital archive of investigations completed by WSU faculty, staff, students, alumni, and retirees. It makes WSU research accessible to the university community, the larger academic community, and the general public.
