Oklahoma Research Day is a consortium event coordinated by Oklahoma's Regional Universities. The first Research Day in Oklahoma was held in 1999 and included 233 poster presentations by students and faculty from Oklahoma colleges and universities.
Now in its eleventh year, Oklahoma Research Day has grown in numbers and in stature with contributions from all of Oklahoma's institutions of higher education including many collaborative contributions from national and international academic and research institutions. The number of oral and poster presentations have grown to over 500 with over 800 students, faculty and guests in attendance, with this year's event including paper presentations.
Oklahoma Research Day is funded by Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, Oklahoma Experimental Program for Stimulating Competitive Research (EPSCoR) - National Science Foundation, Idea Network for Biomedical Research Experience (INBRE) - National Institutes of Health and the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST). Previous to 2008, Oklahoma Research Day has traditionally been held on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma. Northeastern State University accepted the honor of hosting the 2008 Oklahoma Research Day and is proud to host the 2009 Oklahoma Research Day at the Broken Arrow campus.
This event is more than merely a celebration of their research, creative and scholarly activities. It is also an opportunity for students and faculty from multiple institutions to interact with counterparts in their respective disciplines. Oklahoma Research Day is the premier academic research event in the State.
