NEW ORLEANS — The University of New Orleans’ 11th annual InnovateUNO wrapped up Friday with an awards ceremony recognizing the winners of the research and creative symposium. The Earl K. Long Library and UNO’s Fine Arts Gallery were the center for the 2023 showcase in which students presented their independent research, scholarly or creative activities to the campus community.
Over the course of the two-day event, 73 presentations were made, engaging nearly 112 presenters, co-presenters and judges. Presenters included UNO students, faculty and staff from every discipline.
This was the sixth year it has been open to all students, faculty and staff—and the first year it included an InnovateUNO Art Gallery hosted after-hours in the UNO Fine Arts Gallery.
Volunteer judges, including UNO faculty, staff and graduate students, evaluated the presentations.
The best-ranked presentations were awarded a total of $3,000 by the Office of Research. Both undergraduate and graduate students were awarded prizes.
