For our twelfth Academic Showcase we have once again adapted to the challenges presented by COVID-19 by offering a virtual product.  

Our theme this year is Sustainability.  We have been guided by both the
UN’s seventeen sustainability goals as listed on their site, and by the nine goals Franklin Pierce has gleaned from the work of this international organization including:

  • Reduce Poverty and Eliminate Hunger
  • Improve Health and Wellness
  • Increase Diversity, Equality and Inclusivity
  • Promote Peace and Justice
  • Protect and Conserve Water
  • Create Sustainable Campuses and Protect Biodiversity
  • Take Action to Combat Climate Change
  • Provide Work-Life Balance and Wage Equity
  • Provide Mechanisms to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, Including Quality
  • Education and External Partnerships

Students, faculty, and staff have risen to the occasion with customary FPU enthusiasm, and we are happy to report that this site includes the work of more than forty members of our community. Posters, roundtables, demonstrations, documentaries, exhibitions, panel discussions, papers, and musical performances are all available for viewing here.   

This year’s Virtual Academic Showcase would not have been possible without the efforts of the Academic Showcase committee members listed below.  We also acknowledge the valuable assistance provided by Andy Cunningham, Cory Finch, Fiona St. Pierre, and Ben Locke.   

We hope you enjoy our offerings this year! 

On behalf of the entire committee, we thank you.
