Fall Research and Creative Activity Day Is Oct. 31

WCU research day spring 2019On Thursday, Oct. 31, students and faculty will exhibit and discuss their academic work at the Fall Research and Creative Activity Day, organized by WCU’s Office of Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP). All events take place in Sykes Student Union, are free, and are open to the public.

Faculty and students will be on hand to share their ideas, methods, and results via posters and works of art in Sykes Ballrooms from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. From 12:30 to 2 p.m., Sykes’ second-floor meeting rooms will be buzzing with activity as a succession of scholars makes oral presentations.

The day includes lunch from 12 to 2 p.m. and concludes with an awards session from 2:30 to 3 p.m.

Of the 51 research participating projects, 15 relate to sustainability issues. These submissions explore the many ways that WCU faculty and students are helping to design, implement, evaluate, and improve a variety of environmental, social, and economic sustainability activities. Projects are identified with the green “Brandywine b” logo.*

New this year: “Celebrating Faculty Books” recognizes faculty experts who’ve written or edited books that were published in 2018 and 2019. There will be 17 signed books on display and some of the faculty will be present to discuss their work. Attendees can browse the books, fill out a raffle ticket, and win a book.

For more information, visit the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs’ website for a PDF of the day’s schedule and abstracts.
