ASU Students to Showcase Research
April 04, 2012
The symposium will include a poster session from noon to 1:30 p.m. and oral presentations from 1-1:30 p.m. and 1:45-2:30 p.m. in the University Center’s C.J. Davidson Conference Center. All the activities are open free to the public, and light refreshments will be served.
Participating students will feature 19 poster displays and five oral presentations of research projects conducted under the supervision of faculty mentors. All the students will also be available to discuss their projects with campus and community visitors.
The new symposium, along with the upcoming Graduate Research Symposium later in April, replaces the Student Research Symposium that was conducted for the past 10 years during the fall semester. The increasing number of both undergraduate and graduate students involved in research projects precipitated the change to the dual-event format. Each symposium highlights the breadth and complexity of ASU student research.
Projects featured in the Undergraduate Research Symposium represent research from the academic departments of Art and Music; Biology; Chemistry and Biochemistry; Mathematics and Computer Science; English; Nursing and Rehabilitation Sciences; Psychology, Sociology and Social Work; and Physics (including geology).
The symposium is sponsored by ASU’s Academic Affairs Office and Office of Sponsored Projects. It recognizes students’ contributions to the universal body of knowledge through their research and creative activities. It also provides student interaction with community members who are interested in research activities on campus.
