Academic & Creative Excellence Festival

EMU’s Academic and Creative Excellence Festival

Create Together, Explore Together

Each year EMU hosts the Academic and Creative Excellence (ACE) festival. This academic conference experience provides an opportunity for students to learn from their peers and to showcase their own research, creative projects, and papers. It is also an opportunity to continue conversations sparked by our Common Read for the year. We invite a keynote speaker to explore with us a topic that is rooted in EMU’s core values. Undergraduate classes do not meet on Festival day, so everyone can participate.

In addition, students will gain experience to prepare for career success, including the following:

  • practice communicating your ideas and research to others, and practice listening to and engaging with others about their work
  • gain a broader understanding of academic disciplines that aren’t your own
  • experience collaborative teamwork with classmates and/or faculty
  • learn what is important for presenting at or attending a professional conference
