Students to Showcase Scholarly Works at Annual Research and Creative Accomplishments Symposium – April 26

Student presenting at the 2017 Research Symposium

Students will present their research posters, performances, and other creative works to celebrate the vibrant spirit and intellectual vitality of Fairfield University.

Faculty and student collaborative research... demonstrates the rigor and quality of the educational journey at Fairfield.

— Mary Frances Malone, associate vice president for Academic Affairs

Each year Fairfield University graduate and undergraduate students from nearly every discipline and field of study come together to display scholarly projects at the annual Research and Creative Accomplishments Symposium. This year the event will take place on Thursday, April 26 from 1:30 to 5 p.m. in the Oak Room and Dogwood Room of the Barone Campus Center.

Egan School of Nursing students will present their capstone presentations along with undergraduate scholarship and non-scholarship students from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Dogwood Room, and Sigma Xi and graduate students will present from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Oak Room. Posters will be set up and available for viewing starting at 1:30 p.m.

“The Research and Creative Accomplishment Symposium provides an opportunity for our graduate and undergraduate students to share their research and creative skills through the various poster sessions describing their individual and group projects,” said Mary Frances Malone, associate vice president for Academic Affairs.

“Faculty and student collaborative research is recognized in higher education as one of the most important high impact practices. These collaborations, more the norm than the exception at Fairfield University, demonstrate the rigor and quality of the educational journey at Fairfield. We are fortunate to have a number of alumni and friends who support these research and international experiences through endowed funds.”

The works and projects on display will highlight the importance of Fairfield University’s Jesuit mission by promoting scholarship through service, international engagement, and the pursuit of work that contributes to the common good. Projects will be presented by each individual or group of students through a poster that summarizes their research project in a visually appealing way.

"I am really looking forward to my last Sigma Xi presentation this year and can't wait to show how my research project has progressed throughout these past few years,” said Gabriela Vida ’18. “I hope that my project shows people how important genetic interactions are and how important little nematode worms can be in understanding them.”
