Annual Academic Conference
Organization: Saint Vincent College
Description: A multidisciplinary exposition of the academic accomplishments of students in the sciences, business, humanities, fine arts, social sciences and other fields will be showcased at Saint Vincent College's 10th annual academic conference at the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion from 2 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 24. Admission is free and open to the public.
Chaired by Saint Vincent faculty members Dr. Elaine Bennett, assistant professor of anthropology, and Dr. Michael Rhodes, associate professor of biology, the unique event is designed to both recognize individual student research and to provide an opportunity to share the results of that research with fellow students, parents, teachers and others through posters, presentations, lectures, readings, photography, video, multimedia, music and performances.
More than 200 students are expected to present their work during the conference which has grown substantially from its birth in 2004 as a student science exposition initiated by faculty members Dr. Bruce Bethke and Dr. Matthew Fisher. All of the students who displayed during the early conferences have now graduated and many have gone on to complete graduate education degrees with impressive professional research and publications to their credit. Information about some of these graduates will be highlighted at the conference as well.
Location: Sis and Herman Dupre Science Pavilion at SVC, Latrobe
