This week, April 19-23, undergraduate researchers present their work in the Carolyn and Norwood Thomas Undergraduate Research and Creativity Expo, a virtual presentation this year.
This year, there are 223 presentations by more than 239 students, working with 90 mentors, and representing 29 academic departments and programs. Another distinction for the expo includes partnering with the School of Art to co-host a portion of the Senior BFA Exhibitions, available on April 21.
The students are presenting in five categories: Business, Education, Social and Behavioral Sciences; Humanities; Performing Arts; and STEM.
The live presentations will take place on Wednesday, April 21, 9:30-1:00 and Thursday, April 22, 9:30-Noon. Recorded presentations are also through the subject area programs on the website.
“Our students continue to rise to the challenge of working through this pandemic and have been engaged in some incredible research and creative inquiry,” said Dr. Lee Phillips, director of the Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creativity Office.
