Welcome to the 5th annual Meeting of the Minds Student Research Symposium! This year’s event promises to be exceptional – we have nearly 200 oral and poster presentations from programs throughout the university, several outstanding guest speakers, and workshops on publishing and obtaining funding. With almost every discipline participating, our university is well-represented by our students’ outstanding works.
As we review the list of student presentations, we are awed by the breadth and quality of the topics beings explored. Undertaking a research project or producing a creative work is no small matter; it requires persistence, talent, and critical thinking – skills that will benefit our students throughout their lifetimes. We are proud of their achievements.
We also want to recognize the commitment of our faculty mentors, and applaud their willingness to put in long hours to ensure their students’ success. Without their guidance, many of the impressive projects presented today would not have been seen through to fruition.
Finally, we want to thank you all for coming out to support our students – we hope you enjoy the symposium and learn something new in the process!
