Mark your calendars for an event that brings undergraduates, faculty, and staff together in community – the 4th Annual Undergraduate Research Opportunities Symposium targeting historically underserved students of color and first-generation students.
Tuesday Oct 9, 4-6 pm in UMC 235
by Oct. 2, 2012
Dr. Amma Ghartey-Tagoe Kootin, is the keynote speaker, “Performing the Archive.” Following her address, faculty and staff in attendance will join the students for an informal social with food and beverages. The night highlights the work that faculty “do” in their scholarship, and encourages students to engage faculty for mentorship and academic enrichment opportunities.
Keynotes from past Symposia include: Professor Kris Gutiérrez, Provost Chair, Department of Education, Spring 2010, “Consequential Inquiry in the 21st Century”; Assistant Professor, Francisco Barbosa, Department of History, Spring 2011, “The Importance of “Diversity” in Research and Scholarship: Reflections on a Path to the Academy”; Associate Professor, Adam Bradley, Department of English, Fall 2011, “From Research to Rap Stars — and Back.”
Please see attached flyer. It’s a nice starting event to the academic year introducing students to the kind of work/research happening on our campus, for which the CU LEAD Alliance Student Symposium in the Spring term is a nice capstone featuring what students have done in the academic year.
