The Symposium of University Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE) is a student-centered platform for NYIT students to showcase their academic excellence.

SOURCE is a forum for undergraduate and graduate students from all campuses to present academic research projects and creative work in the arts, humanities, engineering, architecture, science, and medicine to the NYIT community. Many students who've presented at SOURCE have gone on to present their research or creative work at national and international conferences, where they have received official recognition for their work.

Join us and discover all the interesting work being conducted by your peers!

Registration for SOURCE is now closed. However, you may still attend the Keynote Address by Stuart Isacoff at noon at NYIT Auditorium on Broadway.

Are you presenting at SOURCE? Get feedback on your poster or presentation in the Manhattan Writing Center from now until April 27. Sign up now for an appointment.
