Subject: Student Research Conference 2010

The UVM Student Research Conference (SRC) is a day long event highlighting the quality and breadth of undergraduate, graduate and medical student research being conducted at the University of Vermont.  The purpose of the conference is to promote and facilitate the exchange of interdisciplinary perspectives, and to encourage student intellectual growth. The Conference is scheduled for Thursday, April 22, 2010, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., in the Dudley H. Davis Center.

Over 200 students are participating this year and will be presenting research in disciplines ranging from molecular genetics to environmental science to digital art.  Their work reflects the scholarship that routinely takes place at the University of Vermont, where the opportunity for inquiry and discovery is available to every  student.  Their efforts, and especially the support and direction provided by their faculty mentors, represents the activity of an engaged scholarly community that is central to UVM.

All students working on a research or creative project with a UVM faculty member are eligible to present some aspect of their research at this forum. Research and creative projects at any stage of completion are welcome. The event also serves as a resource for students who are not yet involved with research but wish to learn about how to engage in research pursuits.

The 2010 UVM SRC is co-sponsored by the Graduate College, Honors College, and the Office of the Vice President for Research.  Academic Support Programs include: Center for Teaching and Learning, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Education and Social Services, College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, College of Medicine, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Graduate Student Senate, Living/Learning Director's Office, Living/Learning SURF Suite, McNair Scholars Program, Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, School of Business Administration, Writing Center, and Writing in the Disciplines Program.
