A-State’s student research and creativity development program, Create @ State, is a year-long program that provides our students with opportunities to become engaged in faculty mentored research and creativity with industry, community, and alumni for student learning and community building. 

Student research & creativity at A-State includes peer programs such as the student research council and research ambassadors, communication of works and community engagement outreach through the Create @ State: Making Connections that Count public radio broadcast and podcast station, workshops and tailored curriculum to disciplines for written and oral communications including abstract and conference presentation skills, and direct corporate engagement with our area industry and workforce for applied research. 

This program culminates each year with the Create @ State Symposium to showcase the co-curricular research, scholarly, and creative works of our students in a professional setting, with judges being those from industry, stakeholders, alumni, community leaders, and administration.  This provides a diverse setting for students to engage with the community, showcase research for community impact, and to receive feedback from potential employers and networks for student learning and community building.  A-State also engages students in state and national research conference opportunities, such as Posters on the Hill and at national Council on Undergraduate Research conferences and workshops.

The ninth annual Create @ State: A Symposium of Research, Scholarship & Creativity will be held on Monday, April 15 through Wednesday, April 17, 2019, in the Fowler Center & the Student Union.
