Inaugural Student Research Poster Symposium

This past fall NEAAPOR was proud to sponsor an Inaugural Student Research Poster Symposium and Reception as part of the Emerson College Global Election Retrospective. This event celebrated student passion for public opinion research and invited students to present their original research results to industry professionals, academics and practitioners.

A total of ten students from several universities in New England participated in the event, presenting their posters to a panel of judges. Student posters covered a range of interesting topics related to public opinion research, including racial inequality, poverty, gender bias, politics, questionnaire design and data collection.

After hearing oral presentations from all the students, judges voted on and selected a top 3. There was also a “fan favorite” selection that was chosen by all attendees collectively. NEAAPOR would like to thank all the students who participated in this event and helped make it a success and congratulations to those selected as winners!

Participating student posters are available to view.

We look forward to hosting the Student Research Poster Symposium again in the fall of 2018. More information on that event will be available soon.
