Dear Colleagues and Students,
Welcome to the 2018 “Meeting of the Minds” Student Research Symposium- the 7th year of this universitywide event that highlights the outstanding research and creative taking place on our beautiful campus. This event is an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the innovation, scholarship, and creativity that our undergraduate and graduate students bring to their research and place for sharing their discoveries and insights with the campus community.

More than 200 students from across all disciplines are presenting their research or creative projects, and more than ten awards will be presented for the best oral and poster presentations during our Recognition of Student Researchers Luncheon on May 18th.

Thank you to our dedicated faculty mentors who have encouraged students in their research, and to the staff for coordinating this year’s symposium. More than 70 volunteers of faculty, staff, and students are sharing their time today to help make the event a successful one. I am truly grateful for these efforts, and I am proud to call CSUSB my new home.
