The DU Day of Research provides a showcase for students and faculty to share original work that demonstrates competencies necessary for engagement in lifelong learning and professional success, as well as offering an opportunity to educate on the process of research. The event is held at the W.A. Lettinga Campus in Grand Rapids. Students and faculty who are unable to present at the on-campus event may do so virtually, using real-time online technology. The Day of Research includes an invited keynote speaker, presentations, and is followed by an award ceremony and reception. It is also live-streamed to all other DU campuses.
