Judicial Duties

The success of this event depends on the participation of faculty who serve as Research Day judges for the hundreds of trainees who participate in the event. Our volunteer judges contribute to the success of these research trainees by providing constructive criticism and guidance. At the same time, judges enhance their awareness of the breadth and depth of research being performed by students at various trainee levels.  

Judging for the 2022 event will be done virtually the week of March 9th, with all evaluations being due March 18th.  Each judge will complete an evaluation for 3-5 poster/presentations. The judges form contains a checklist of critical review areas and a rating scale.

We are grateful for the time and effort given by our participating judges. Thank you in advance for volunteering and for helping to ensure the success of our Research Day events.

Faculty members with students presenting a poster are required to judge posters for other student presenters.
