Education and Social Work Students
To Display Research Projects April 24

 MAILED:  April 17, 2003

EAU CLAIRE - Education and social work students at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will share the results of semester-long diversity research projects during the Spring 2003 Research Expo Thursday, April 24.

The Research Expo, which will run from 4 to 5:15 p.m. in the Tamarack Room of Davies Center, will feature projects designed by 136 students currently enrolled in "Social Foundations of Human Relations" courses, taught by Dr. Cynthia Gray-Mash and Dr. Darlene Fry and the "Ethnic-sensitive Social Work Practice" course taught by Dr. La Vonne Cornell-Swanson. The event has been held for education students each semester since the fall of 1998. This is the first year that social work students have participated as well.

Examples of research projects to be displayed include:

"The projects introduce students to research as applied to the understanding of cultural complexity and reflective processes that strengthen professional practice in teaching and other professions," said Gray-Mash, associate professor of foundations of education.

The event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Gray-Mash at (715) 836-5587 or gray@uwec.edu; Fry at (715) 836-4537 or fryd@uwec.edu; or Cornell-Swanson at (715) 836-3580 or cornellj@uwec.edu.
