A total of 107 Holy Cross students who conducted research during the summer will present their work in poster form at the 20th annual Undergraduate Summer Research Symposium on Sept. 6 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Hogan Campus Center Ballroom.
The symposium will include 84 poster presentations featuring research conducted by students and faculty in the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences at Holy Cross, and 23 poster presentations from students who conducted research off campus.
The symposium is a college-wide event that brings faculty and students together from all disciplines at Holy Cross, and provides an opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments as well as those of their friends and colleagues. It is also a way for students to witness the breadth of research possibilities on and off campus, and to open a dialogue with a faculty member about conducting research during the upcoming academic year and summer.
The summer research program was organized by Daniel Bitran, the College’s science coordinator; Daniel Klinghard, director of the summer research program in humanities, social sciences and arts; and Bryan Engelhardt, the director of the summer research program in economics.
The summer research projects were made possible through a mix of funding sources, including contributions from alumni and parents.
