A wide range of poster topics was presented by faculty representing 18 academic departments on campus. Visual arts presentations were provided by seven faculty members from Art and Art History. The annual event was created to promote campus recognition of the research, scholarship, and creative-activities performed within the UMKC community. In addition, it is anticipated that the event will promote interaction and collaboration among faculty members from all across UMKC.
