27th Annual Student Research Conference
April 17 @ 8:00 am - April 18 @ 5:00 pm
136 students will present 92 research projects at the 27th Annual Student Research Conference (SRC), April 17-18 in the University Center.
The conference encourages research by undergraduate and graduate students in all academic disciplines and provides a setting to present their work in a professional manner. Research can be independent, part of a course or as a team collaboration. The conference aligns with the University’s goal to promote a culture that values research and scholarly and creative activity.
The conference will feature 15-17-minute oral presentations, poster presentations, and new this year, a Senior Capstone Symposium and four roundtable discussion sessions. The symposium will feature presentations by students who have completed senior-level capstone research experiences such as HN499 Honors Research, Academic Distinction in the Department of the Major, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) seminar, and the McNair Scholars Program. Also new to the conference this year, professionally printed hanging posters will be displayed at the poster sessions.
Cash prizes will be awarded for first-, second- and third-place presenters in each category, totaling 15 between undergraduate- and graduate-level research. A multidisciplinary group of faculty judges have been recruited and trained to ensure diverse, fair judging and useful feedback for students. Additionally, faculty mentors whose student presenters win first place in their division will receive a faculty mentor recognition award; and all participants and volunteers will receive recognition certificates and conference T-shirts.
This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Jennifer Ohs, associate professor and graduate program coordinator in the Department of Communication at Saint Louis University, on Wednesday, April 17, at noon in the University Center Ballroom A.
