Record Year for the 18th Student Research Conference Nears

All of the hard work and hours of studying will pay off soon for student researchers. 

The 18th Annual Student Research Conference April 14 marks the culmination of their creative achievement with a Universitywide celebration of undergraduate and graduate research, scholarship and creative achievement.

This year’s conference boasts record participation with 311 presentations to be delivered by 391 student authors mentored by 159 faculty members. Students will display research from a broad spectrum of disciplines in varied formats from oral papers to posters, and performing arts to technology exhibits.

Classes from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. will not meet on the day of the Conference, so that all faculty and students can attend the presentations.

The day also will include a Conferencewide Plenary Address titled “Undergraduate Research for the Public Good.” Elizabeth Paul, chair of psychology at the College of New Jersey, will lecture on the subject at 11 a.m., in Violette Hall 1000.

In addition, several informal roundtable discussion sessions will take place during the lunch hour. Two of the sessions are designed for students to learn about how to get started on a scholarly project, as well as opportunities for conducting research during the first year. Two other sessions will focus on faculty issues including how to define and count scholarly work with undergraduates and how to initiate and sustain interdisciplinary projects.
