Langsdale Library, the Helen P. Denit Honors Program, and the Office of the Provost are sponsoring an undergraduate symposium entitled “Inspired Discoveries” on Friday, April 29, 2016 in the Business Center Auditorium and Atrium. This symposium will be part of an ongoing effort to recognize and encourage undergraduate research and other academic achievements.
The day will consist of opening remarks, student presentations, and a luncheon with an alumnus keynote speaker. Student presentations may be in the form of poster sessions, exhibits, panel presentations or presented papers. Projects may include original research conducted individually or as a team or creative works such as video games or design projects.
The sponsoring committee is soliciting applications for students projects submitted either by the student or advising faculty member. Student applications must be accompanied by a faculty letter of recommendation. Selected students should be prepared to attend the full-day symposium. Applications are available at: http://langsdale.ubalt.edu/inspired-discoveries/
Applications are due by April 11, 2016. The sponsoring committee in conjunction with a group of faculty advisors will review and select participants for the symposium. The best project in both areas of research and creative works will receive a $500 scholarship and participants’ work will be featured in an online campus publication.
We encourage faculty and students to submit outstanding projects.
