JACKSON, Tenn. – April 27, 2007 – More than 150 students will present research findings April 30 as part of Union University’s Scholarship Symposium.
The university’s Undergraduate Research Program sponsors the annual event. Presentations are open to undergraduate and graduate students who have completed a collaborative, innovative scholarly project during the current academic year.
The program’s goal is to provide students with the opportunity to work with a faculty mentor on a research project. More than 40 faculty members participated with students in this year’s symposium.
“The privilege for students to participate in this level of serious exploration and research is usually reserved for graduate study,” Union University President David S. Dockery said. “The entire project is an affirmation of the quality of Union students and the serious investment that Union faculty members provide for these students.”
