According to Webster’s Seventh Collegiate Dictionary, “research” is defined as “studious inquiry or examination; especially investigation or experimentation aimed at the discovery and interpretation of facts, revision of accepted theories or laws in the light of new facts, or practical applications of such new or revised theories or laws”. Research is a process of exploration and discovery.  This symposium highlights student class projects and independent research projects.  The class projects range from a library research paper to a proposal for a research project, from a laboratory experiment to an investigation for a field course.  The student research projects are the culmination of one or more semesters’ work by students working individually or as part of a team.  Some of these projects were conceived, researched, designed and executed entirely by the student under the faculty mentor’s supervision.  Others represent a student’s investigation into a problem related to the faculty mentor’s research. This symposium celebrates the students’ accomplishments.
