Webster’s Dictionary defines a sash as “the framework in which panes of glass are set in a window or door.” At Roger Williams University, SASH (Student Academic Showcase and Honors) is a week-long celebration of our students' scholarly and creative efforts, which serve as frameworks for making them job- or graduate school-ready.
As part of SASH, the Day-Long Student Academic Symposium provides a forum for students to present their scholarly and creative works before an audience of peers. Multiple formats for presentations are available. Morning sessions consist of students’ poster presentations. Afternoon and evening sessions consist of concurrent sessions that include students’ thesis, capstone and other paper or project presentations, panel discussions, displays of design work, exhibitions of visual and multimedia artifacts, performing arts recitals, literary readings, theatrical performances, and spotlighting of Community Partnership Center projects.
The Office of the Provost, in consultation with the SASH Steering Committee, is the primary sponsor of the Day-Long Student Academic Symposium.
