Students in numerous disciplines including biology, chemistry, psychology, political science, and religion are presenting their research projects today as part of Undergraduate Research Day, a culmination of months of advanced study, preparation, and revision.
Poster sessions began this morning with student presenters and faculty mentors on hand to discuss their work. Lecture presentations are from 1:30-3:30 this afternoon in Room 246 in Axinn Library ; topics include intervention and the United Nations Security Council, the role of Latino day laborers in the reconstruction of Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, and ethical cultivation.
“The presentation of research, the sharing of knowledge, is the lifeblood of the academic enterprise,” noted Neil Donahue, assistant provost for undergraduate research and fellowships. “We all benefit from knowing what our hardest working, most advanced students have accomplished.”
