Innovative teaching and creative work – whether in a classroom, in a lab or in a studio – are the heart of any dynamic university culture. At University of Southern Maine, it is showcased at Thinking Matters, a one-day, once-a-year conference, that is a capstone that reflects what's going on all year long in departments all across campus. It promotes the high quality student-faculty research collaborations and opportunities available to both graduate and undergraduate students. Its an event that allows students and faculty to share their work with each other, their colleagues, and the general public. Students are encouraged to participate and present their research as posters or oral sessions.
