With the completion of the 2016 Summer Research Symposium on June 27th, we have seen an increase in participation with over 70 undergraduate researchers that totaled over 11,000 hours of effort over the past 6 weeks. Generous funding for this research came from several different sources, including the Br. Romard/JD Lewis Student Research Fund, Community for Achievement in Research, Academics and Science (CASAR), Welch Foundation Chemistry Grant, Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) Program, Dean’s Discretionary Fund, USDA and McKemie Summer Scholarship.
Thank you to all students as well as the 24 research supervisors who helped mentor and guide this research over the past few months. We’d also like to thank the Office of Sponsored Programs and the School of Natural Sciences for helping make these research projects and symposium possible at SEU.
For those of you who participated in summer research this year, please take a minute to take both the SEU and national post-research surveys that will give us valuable information for the future development of our research programs at SEU:
