Showcase of Excellence events will celebrate student research at PSU

April 9th, 2014 by Tim

More than 100 Plymouth State University students will present projects during a special event celebrating research.

The Student Showcase of Excellence, scheduled for Friday, April 25 from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the University’s Hartman Union Building, features students from many academic disciplines presenting poster displays, demonstrations, and live events. The Showcase is free and open to the public.

Thad Guldbrandsen, PSU Vice Provost for Research and Engagement, says the event highlights student research and creative projects in the sciences, humanities, social sciences and the arts. “Through this work, students are contributing to new understanding of our world, even as they prepare themselves for their future careers,” he said. “This is a great chance for parents, alumni, local residents and any other members of the PSU community to see that scholarly excellence is alive and well at Plymouth State University.”

Some of the projects are offered in connection with the National Institutes of Health’s IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) grant to increase opportunities for faculty and student research.

Past research topics have included studies of toxins, wildlife, agriculture, music, dance, literature and history. Student projects will come from most of the University’s more than 20 academic departments, representing almost 50 academic disinclines.
