Any undergraduate student enrolled in an accredited, not-for-profit Tennessee college, university, or community college who has completed a mentored research, service learning project, or a study abroad experience is eligible to present at TELS. The event is open to anyone to register and attend. This includes other undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff from Tennessee or outside Tennessee.

To highlight the interdisciplinary focus, each oral and poster session will be organized around these themes: Culture, Heritage & the Creative Economy, Business & Enterprise, Governance & Society, Sustainability, Agriculture & the Environment, Improving Lives and Communities, Logic and Reasoning, and Science, Technology & Society.

This year’s theme is “Voices from the Misty Mountains: Diversity and Unity, a New Appalachia.” We especially invite presentations that focus on the changing face of the region; the diverse groups that constitute who we are; the educational and community institutions that either accommodate or react to the changes that challenge us and call for our best selves; and the grass-roots efforts to protect the very mountains that are the principal source of our commonality and identity.
