Undergrad research symposium April 17

The psychology department at WSU will host its first annual Undergraduate Research Symposium April 17, featuring a guest speaker and research projects by several of its undergraduate students.

The events associated with the symposium, scheduled for the Samuel H. Smith Center for Undergraduate Education, are part of the psychology department’s Undergraduate Research Initiative. The program seeks to increase faculty and undergraduate interaction through collaborative research projects. All events are open to the public.

Last year, students submitted proposals for original research projects, competing for a limited number of undergraduate grants. Seven psychology undergraduates and students from the WSU Alcohol Studies Program will present their research findings as part of the symposium.

Posters that showcase undergraduate research projects will be on display in the SCUE atrium 2:30 – 5 p.m.

Robert Horner, a WSU alumnus (1975) and faculty member at the University of Oregon, will present “Conducting Behavioral Science to Improve Schools and Communities.” The event is 3 – 4 p.m. in SCUE 203. Horner is a recipient of the American Association on Mental Retardation’s national Education Award for his contribution to research, teaching and policy in the field of mental retardation.

A formal poster session will happen 4 – 5 p.m. in the SCUE atrium. Students will be on hand to discuss their research projects and answer questions.
