STEAM Salon

About STEAM Salon

STEAM Salon is an informal series presented by the Research Commons and hosted by the STEM Library.

The mission of STEAM Salon is to provide a platform that centers the work of emerging researchers, faculty, and students at the intersection of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.

STEAM Salons enrich the intellectual and cultural life of our community through engaged conversation and shared ideas. We offer an inclusive space for developing researchers, faculty, and students to grow as professionals and to connect with a broad campus audience.

We highly encourage faculty mentor nominations and student proposals for STEAM Salon presentations.

Call for Proposals

STEAM Salon will resume in Fall 2021 as a virtual event presented by the STEM library. We are currently accepting proposals and nominations for the 2021 - 2022 Academic Year.
