September 21, 2010 - The School of Arts and Sciences initiated a series of monthly symposia that feature one of the eight departments of the School each month. “These symposia are designed to showcase the teaching, research, outreach, and creative activities that our faculty and students are engaged in both on and off campus,” says Dr. Samuel White, dean, School of Arts and Sciences. The first “Monthly Symposium” was held September 16, at 12:30PM in room 109 (auditorium) of the Math and Science Building. Presentations were held by students of the Chemistry Department, Kendra Robinson Taylor and Jasmine Burrell.
“We are so proud of our students,” says Dr. Babu Patlolla, interim associate dean, School of Arts and Sciences. “Their presentations showed deep knowledge of the material and a great deal of dedication. Kendra presented her research findings at the 2009 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students, and Jasmine will present at the 2010 conference in November in Charlotte, North Carolina.”
“Monthly Symposium” will be held each third Thursday of the month (October 21st and November 18th) at 12:30PM in the auditorium (room 109), Math and Science Building. Everyone is invited!
