UT Celebrating Undergraduate Research April 22–May1

Published: Apr 8, 2013

Research is not just something done by University of Tampa faculty or graduate students. Participating in a research project as an undergraduate gives students a better understanding of their field and the opportunity to develop relationships with faculty.

From April 22–May 1, UT will celebrate undergraduate research at the University with a series of events:

  • Monday, April 22: Celebrating Honors Day. The Honors Program undergraduate research fellows will be officially recognized and give oral presentations of their findings as part of Honors Day celebrations. Presentations will be held on the 9th floor of the Vaughn Center at 4 p.m.
  • Friday, April 26: College of Natural and Health Sciences Undergraduate Research Symposium. CNHS students will present their current or recently completed research projects in a poster format. The keynote presentation by Greg Springsteen, associate professor of chemistry at Furman University, will be held in the Sykes College of Business Room 131 from 2–3 p.m. Poster presentations will be held in Plant Hall’s Fletcher Lounge from 3–5 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 27: Annual Human Rights Conference. Organized by UT's Human Rights Think Tank, the conference is dedicated to the understanding, analysis and promotion of the global human rights movement. Presentations will be made by students, academicians and human rights activists. The keynote speaker is Mid-Florida American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Director Joyce Hamilton Henry, who will speak on felon voter disenfranchisement and human rights. The conference will be held on the 9th floor of the Vaughn Center from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, May 1: College of Social Sciences, Mathematics and Education Undergraduate Research Conference.
