The Annual Petersheim Academic Exposition is a university-wide event that celebrates the scholarly achievement of undergraduate and graduate students through the sights and sounds of academic knowledge and its application. The EXPO is aligned with Seton Hall University's mission in several ways, honoring the innovative spirit of its founder, Matthew Petersheim, PhD, associate professor of chemistry, who passed away in 1998.
The Petersheim Academic Exposition steering committee encourages faculty members to support the academic exposition by incorporating student presentations within their courses this semester. Faculty Sponsors will then encourage students to present their work in research symposia, poster sessions, presentations, panel discussions, theatrical performances, art exhibits, debates, concerts and more. The steering committee encourages the incorporation of honorary ceremonies, discipline-specific speakers or other programming that may take place during and around the time of the academic exposition.
Named in honor of its founder - Matthew Petersheim, Ph.D., associate professor of chemistry, who died in October 1998 after a battle with cancer - the exposition celebrates the sights and sounds of knowledge and academic achievement of undergraduate and graduate students at the University.
