About the Research Colloquium


The Student Research Colloquium was established in 1998 to provide TU students with an opportunity to gain public speaking experience, learn about research from fields outside their own academic discipline, and experience judging methods used by professional organizations for national and international meetings/conferences.

For the past several years the Student Research Colloquium has been held in conjunction with the OU-Tulsa’s Research Day. Oral Presentations are included as part of the TU Student Research Colloquium and posters are presented at OU-Tulsa’s Research Day on Schusterman Campus at 41st and Yale.

This year’s event is scheduled for the week of April 1 – 5, 2019.

Submissions will start being accepted at the beginning of the Spring 2019 semester and more information will be sent out as soon as it becomes available.


Any TU or OU-Tulsa graduate or undergraduate student who is involved in a research project for any discipline.


Presentations may contain original research or scholarship that you may be conducting, work that you already submitted for a classroom project during the previous fall semester or work in progress for the spring semester. Some students also use the colloquium as an opportunity to present research proposals or scholarship for which they are contemplating an in-depth study. Research does not have to be experimentally based. Humanities, business, engineering, legal, physical science and social science topics are welcome.
