About BEAR Day

Mercer University will hold her 11th annual Breakthroughs in Engagement, Arts, and Research (BEAR) Day and 20th annual Engineering Expo April 14-15, 2021 showcasing outstanding student research and special projects from the College of Liberal Arts, Stetson School of Business and Economics, Townsend School of Music, the School of Engineering, Tift College of Education, and the College of Health Professions.
All Mercer undergraduates can choose to present their research either as a poster (April 14th) or as an oral presentation (April 15th). Engineering students in the Honors program will submit their abstracts to Dr. Phil McCreanor. For information regarding standard Senior Design Projects, please contact Dr. Hodge Jenkins.

"BEAR Day demonstrates and honors the achievements of students and highlights the depth and breadth of the academic experiences at Mercer. I trust that BEAR Day will spark your own intellectual curiosity and inspire further scholarly pursuits."
