Fisk is renowned for engaging students in research and scholarly activities. Empirical research and scholarship are grounded in our academic curriculum, campus support services, and community activities. Our faculty, students and administrators emphasize the discovery and advancement of knowledge through research in the natural and social sciences, business and the humanities.
The research symposium is a venue to disseminate and share scholarly contributions with other researchers and scholars. As research contributions and best practices are presented from several disciplines, it provides opportunities for inter-disciplinary research and collaboration. The poster presentations and dialogue with the researchers shows Fisk’s commitment for critical thinking and inquiry-based learning. Further, it strengthens the idea of serendipitous education – acquisition of knowledge in a positive and affirming learning environment.

Annual Fisk Research Symposium is organized since 1999 (see Past Symposia Page for more information). Prior to 2010, it was called Student Research Day (SRD).
