Student Research on Display
At UW-Eau Claire April 22-23 

MAILED: April 15, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE  University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students will once again have the opportunity to display the results of student/faculty collaborative research as well as independent student research at the 10th annual Student Research Day April 22 and 23. Posters will be on display in the Council Fire Room of the Davies Center from noon-5 p.m. April 22 and from 8 a.m. to noon April 23.
         The event highlights student research accomplishments and the important role faculty and academic staff play as mentors in the scholarly activity process, said Dr. Christopher Lind, assistant vice chancellor and director of the Center of Excellence for Faculty/Student Research Collaboration. Research Day encourages dissemination of research results from all disciplines in the UW-Eau Claire academic community, and all students and faculty as well as community members are invited to view the displays.
         This year's projects represent student/faculty collaborations in 33 departments and units, with 170 displays involving 250 students and 125 faculty mentors. Each presentation has at least one faculty mentor, with some faculty involved in multiple collaborations.
         Judges will select a few posters in each category for special recognition. The categories are arts and humanities, behavioral and social sciences, business and professional studies, natural and physical sciences, and graduate entries.
         Funding to support the research projects came from a variety of sources including the UW-Eau Claire Center of Excellence for Faculty/Student Research Collaboration, the UW-Eau Claire Foundation, Inc., the Blugold Fellows Program, the U.S. Department of Education McNair Fellows Program, The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, the Research Corporation, American Chemical Society-Petroleum Research Fund, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey, the UW System Applied Research Program, the American Cancer Society, Sigma Theta Tau, the American Heart Association, and support within academic departments of the university.
