Sigma Xi

University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Chapter of Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Chapter of Sigma Xi organizes events that promote, support, and celebrate scholarly research in the sciences and more broadly, with an emphasis on research being done by students. Each Spring semester, Sigma Xi holds a two-day research exhibition where students present posters describing their research.

Information on the 2025 Research Exhibition will be available here in March 2025.

2024 Research Exhibition

The 28th annual Sigma Xi Research Exhibition was held on April 17th and 18th, 2024 in the Library Livingroom. Posters were scored by judges based on poster content, poster design, and the student’s verbal presentation of the research. The top-scoring posters were recognized at the end of the exhibition, and the presenters received prizes of $500 for first place and $250 for second place.
