Faculty Research Expo
Faculty members from all disciplines are invited to participate in this event to share their current scholarly and creative activity with the student community. Organized in an informal open house format, each faculty member will have a table and easel to display recent publications, creative work, research posters, photos, etc. This is a great way to let students know what you do outside of the classroom, interact and develop potential collaborations with other faculty members, and possibly involve students in your own scholarly activity.

TIME: 4 - 6 p.m.
WHERE: Bush Conference Center, Beckman 404
