At University of Southern Maine, it is showcased at Thinking Matters, a one-day, once-a-year conference, that is a capstone that reflects what's going on all year long in departments all across campus. It promotes the high quality student-faculty research collaborations and opportunities available to both graduate and undergraduate students.
