EMU’s Academic and Creative Excellence Festival
Create Together, Explore Together
Each year EMU hosts the Academic and Creative Excellence (ACE) festival. This is an opportunity for you to learn from your classmates and present your own research, creative projects and papers. It is also an opportunity to continue conversations sparked by our Common Read for the year. We invite a keynote speaker to explore with us a topic that is rooted in EMU’s core values. We cancel undergraduate classes so that everyone can participate.
In addition, you will gain experience that prepares you for career success, including the following:
- practice communicating your ideas and research to those in other fields
- provide constructive feedback for classmates about ideas that may be new to you
- teamwork- many presentations and projects are collaborative with classmates or faculty
- learn what is important for presenting at or attending a professional conference
- gain a broader understanding of academic disciplines that aren’t your own
The ACE Festival is grateful for the support of its sponsors, whose generosity makes our reception and break refreshments possible. Representatives from our sponsors will be with us during each of the reception and break times; you are encouraged to greet them!
