About the Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting of the Society of Fellows is a one-day student research conference that consists of a morning plenary session, a midday poster session, concurrent afternoon panel sessions and a concluding award reception.  Students present scholarly research or artistic projects completed under the supervision of a Dyson faculty mentor. The Annual Meeting allows students to share their academic achievements with peers, faculty, family, friends, and alumni and participate in an experience similar to presenting at a professional conference. Each presentation is followed by the opportunity for questions and discussion that make the Annual Meeting a learning event for all who attend.
