Since its inception in 2010, the Office of Student Research has funded 36 research projects involving 56 students. Of this number, student researchers have presented their work at more than 20 different professional conferences and disciplinary meetings at the local, regional, national, and international levels. Two journal articles with ties to the funded research have been published. Learn more about the Office of Student Research at iupuc.edu/student-research.
The Office of Student Research will host its fourth annual student research exhibition on Tuesday, April 22 from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
The event will showcase findings from 11 funded projects completed at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) during the 2013-14 academic year. The free event will be held in the Student Commons in the Columbus Learning Center. The public is invited to attend.
According to Dr. Julie Goodspeed-Chadwick, director of the Office of Student Research (OSR), 14 undergraduate students and several faculty mentors representing a cross-section of disciplines completed the work.
“The exhibition is something our campus community is proud of because these students produce scholarly work addressing important issues and questions that have impact on us all. The projects are quite diverse in their approaches and explore topics like politics, law enforcement, psychology, plant and insect biology, tourism, mathematics education, chemistry, and women’s studies,” she explained.
Descriptions of the funded projects, along with the names of the student researchers, their majors, hometowns, and faculty mentors follow.
The Columbus Learning Center is located at 4555 Central Avenue near Columbus Municipal Airport. Parking is free.
