"Celebrating Collaborations: Students and Faculty Working Together" is Smith College's annual celebration of student research and performance. On this day, we highlight student intellectual achievements and the collaborative efforts of our students and faculty in a variety of departmental, program, and interdisciplinary projects. It is a celebration of liberal arts education and all that is embodied by that.
It is our hope that all members of the Smith community and many guests will partake in the intellectual richness of this day, recognizing that these sessions are a mere sampling of the exciting student-faculty collaborations which unfold on our campus every day.
