Welcome to Academic Showcase 2022

Welcome to Academic Showcase 2022. For our thirteenth annual Academic Showcase we are offering a hybrid program of both live and asynchronous presentations. In 2022, Franklin Pierce University will celebrate its 60th anniversary. Our thirteenth annual Academic Showcase continues this year-long celebration. Besides the traditional emphasis on student scholarship in the form of posters, presentations, and performances, this yearís event features a number of current and former faculty and staff who will share important moments in the history of the institution.


Questions regarding registration and submissions can be directed to Paul Jenkins, Chair of the Academic Showcase Committee:
