A spark is a small fiery particle that, if in the right environment, can ignite a large fire. Here at Hollins, we see that every day as a small idea grows into an investigation, an exploration, or a movement. And SPARC - the Student Performance and Academic Research Conference - is the place where your ideas catch fire.
SPARC, formerly known as the Hollins Student Conference (2012-2016), is an opportunity for all Hollins University undergraduate students, regardless of major, to present academic research or creative work to the larger Hollins community. All scholarly or creative work that has been - or is being - completed under the guidance of a faculty or staff member can be entered.
