Academic Research Colloquium

5th Annual Academic Research Colloquium

The 5th annual Academic Research Colloquium at the University of Dayton has been canceled due to the evolving and unknown situation with the COVID-19 virus. 

While this is not the outcome that any of us wanted to see, the health and safety of the participants and our faculty and staff are of utmost importance.

Please return to this website for details about future ARC events.

As a Catholic, Marianist institution dedicated to providing answers to the global issues of our times, the University of Dayton's School of Engineering Academic Research Colloquium for Ph.D. candidates and post-doctoral scholars provides avenues of opportunity for future engineering faculty.
