Dear Monmouth University Community:

Welcome to Monmouth University’s seventh annual Student Scholarship Week, a celebration of scholarly inquiry, ingenuity, and academic excellence. Throughout the week, we will showcase and celebrate the impressive research, creative work, and service accomplishments of our students over the past year.

This year, Scholarship Week will feature student work and student-faculty collaboration across departments and disciplines on issues ranging from sustainability and healthy living to public history and global human rights. More than 900 students will present their work in more than 20 events such as poster sessions, panels, and performances, including our signature Hawk Talks on April 20 featuring poster presentations and brief TED-talk inspired sessions by our exceptional undergraduate and graduate students.

I am so proud of our students who have excelled in their research, creative pursuits, and service activities this year, and I am grateful to our faculty and staff who have helped guide and support our students’ scholarly ambitions at Monmouth. I am likewise grateful to our cross-disciplinary steering committee whose collaborative efforts have helped to develop an outstanding roster of programs and activities for Scholarship Week 2022.
