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!

This year's SOURCE panel discussion,“Inspired by Nature: Through the Eyes of Art and Science,” explores how both artists and scientists find common inspiration in nature, and the ways in which their creative processes and analyses of the natural world converge and diverge. Join panelists Yuko Oda, associate professor digital art and design, and Gavin McStay, assistant professor of life sciences, and moderator James Simon, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, for this dynamic and visually stimulating show-and-tell.

Complimentary meals and transportation from Old Westbury to our Manhattan campus is provided to all SOURCE attendees.
