Student Research Initiatives


This scholarly journal recognizes student achievement in research by providing publishing opportunities for undergraduate and graduate Georgia College students from all disciplines. A call for papers goes out each semester for an annual volume that is published every spring.

Student Research Conference and Showcase of Graduate Research

The Student Research Conference provides undergraduate and graduate Georgia College students from all disciplines the opportunity to present their scholarly work to the campus community. The Showcase of Graduate Research at the GC Macon Center provides the same opportunity to graduate students from the Macon and Warner Robins campuses. A call for proposals goes out each semester for these annual spring proceedings.

Student Research in this context is interpreted as any scholarly or creative activity ranging from scientific experimentation, to service-learning, to literary criticism, to case-study design, to artistic expression, and so on. As such, students from all disciplines are invited to present at these events.

Presentation formats include paper, poster, citizen-scholar, performance/reading, and capstone portfolio. Special sessions are also offered for students and faculty to discuss best practices in student research.
