The BCTR offers students across campus the opportunity to learn about and participate in research techniques and data collection and analysis as research assistants in many of the center's projects. The annual student showcase gives some current BCTR students an  opportunity to present on their work with the center.

The 2013 showcase was held on May 6th. Over 30 people attended, including graduate students, undergraduate students, and BCTR and College of Human Ecology staff. Presentations prompted discussions between center projects about their similar research interests. For example, the issue of parent (or other care-giving adult)/child communication was a recurring subject across presentations and subsequent discussions. Both the Cornell Research Program on Self-Injurious Behavior and the Nurse Family Partnership are considering the best ways for caregivers and children to connect. Multiple center projects are also looking at the "secondary suffering" of parents or caregivers, which applies to those caring for self-injurious youth or elders.
