Event Location

State Capitol rotunda

Note: Due to reconstruction work at the Capitol, there will not be a Scholars at the Capitol event in 2015 or 2016. Instead, various activities will occur as part of the Private College Scholars Showcase.

This 11th annual event will be held Tuesday, April 8, 2014. Each college selects and sends its own students and posters; the Minnesota Private College Council is a primary sponsor. Students present to visitors in the Rotunda from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Abstracts coverIn 2014, 41 students and their faculty advisors from our colleges will present 30 posters describing their research in various disciplines. From psychology to environmental studies, history to biology, the breadth of the subject matter presented here represents the wide range of student learning that occurs every day at Minnesota’s Private Colleges. For a complete listing of projects, view the 2014 Private College Scholars at the Capitol abstract booklet.
