Thinking Matters


Thinking Matters 2021

Both graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to participate and present their research as posters or oral sessions. 

This year's Thinking Matters will be hosted by Digital Commons, a web-based, open-access institutional repository that is managed by USM Libraries.  By utilizing Digital Commons:

  • Published presentations provide our students with a permanent URL that can be used in their professional resumes or CVs
  • Greater public exposure to the range of research that is being done at our university
  • The work is digitally archived
  • Presentations are available as examples for future students
