April 24, 2020 would have been the 14th annual Research and Creativity Day symposium at the University of Mary Washington. As in years past, the Hurley Convergence Center would have been filled with posters and hosted simultaneous oral sessions. There would have been multiple exhibitions and performances across campus, and numerous departments would have hosted their own events to celebrate the intellectual and creative work of their students. Unfortunately, the unprecedented events connected to the Coronavirus pandemic this year has meant that along with all other face-to-face events and classes at the university, we cannot hold this year’s Research and Creativity Day as we have in years past.
But students and faculty have been working together throughout this year on their research and creative projects, and we want to take the time to share them and celebrate them. For that reason, we will be holding the 2020 Research and Creativity Day as a Virtual Symposium.

Specifically, we would like to congratulate and thank all our student presenters and their faculty mentors for their accomplishments, and to all of us for making it through this busy and unusual year!
