Research and Engagement Day
REDay, a Bryant tradition, showcases research collaboration, creativity, and innovative academic accomplishments of students,faculty, and industry and community partners. Day classes are cancelled so that all of the Bryant community can take part.
Students, faculty and staff participate in research presentations, roundtable discussions, showcases of creative expression, and poster presentations. Topics reflect the exciting academic and creative work of members of the Bryant community.
Provost Glenn Sulmasy calls REDay "a celebration of the diversity of scholarship. We are a learning environment that focuses on applied scholarship, that values creativity in all of its forms, that encourages collaboration between faculty, staff, and students, and that has been on the leading edge of innovation since its founding in 1863."
REDay 2017 will be held on Wednesday, April 12. This year's keynote speaker is journalist Robert Schlesinger, Managing Editor for Opinion at U.S. News and World Report and author of White House Ghosts: Presidents and Their Speechwriter, a history of presidential speechwriters.
Last year's REDay featured more than 100 presentations involving more than 500 students and nearly 100 faculty and staff. The keynote speaker was Hedrick Smith, a Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter and editor and Emmy award-winning producer/correspondent. His talk explored the impact politics and economics have on America.
