The Academic, Creative and Engaged Research Showcase (ACERS) at Laurier Brantford recognizes student and faculty research, showcases creative projects by our students, and provides learning experiences for the general public and for the Laurier community.

The showcase provides a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to present their work to their peers and community – and potentially win some prizes for it! Students can be nominated by faculty members but they are also welcome to self-nominate.

ACERS Events

Creativity and Engagement Expo

The Creativity and Engagement Expo features presentations of students' creative and engaged projects, including posters, visual arts, multimedia and recorded performances.

Feature Conferences

Every year there is a mini-conference on a hot topic, which provides a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about and discuss current issues and trends in contemporary society.
