Student Conference: April 26, 2017 - Wednesday

Overview and Purpose

The purpose of the Student Conference is to provide students with the experience of presenting their own work in a formal conference environment. Students are required to work with a mentor and must submit their proposals for presentation through this mentor.

The theme this year is "Knowledge is Power." We are encouraging proposals for presentations that show research into the concept of knowledge. For example: What is knowledge from a psychological perspective? What factors impacts knowledge in society? How does knowledge manifest physiologically? Does religious faith increase or decrease one's knowledge? How have literary figures addressed what it means to be knowledgeable? etc.

Outcome

 Students will engage in rigorous undergraduate work with a mentor and present their work in a formal conference environment.

Objectives
  • Students will demonstrate critical and creative thinking by developing an *original work for presentation.
  • Students will demonstrate communication mastery through presentation of their *original work.
  • Students will demonstrate team work by collaborating with a mentor in the development of this project.

*Original work is work that was created by a student or a group of students through their own effort in the current academic year. Work is considered original even when it is based on the research of others (properly cited) or if it furthers an idea or theme that was created by someone else.

Submission Deadline:  March 10, 2017
