Interdisciplinary Research Symposium a success

May 20, 2014
Posted In: Events, Faculty & Staff Headlines, Student Headlines, University Headlines

Faculty and student researchers from the ATSU Arizona campus came together for a week-long Interdisciplinary Research Symposium sponsored by the Arizona Interdisciplinary Research Committee (IRC), May 12-16.

Each day of the week at noon, three faculty members from different programs presented their research in five topical areas: Promoting healthy lifestyles and quality of life through research; Educational research; Linking education, research, and practice, Neuroscience research; and Research across the lifespan. On Friday, May 16, students presented their poster presentations from 3:30-5 p.m.

Approximately 25-30 participants attended each day’s lunch event lecture sessions, and individuals off campus were able to participate through Livestream.

Over the course of the week, the IRC received many positive comments about the quality and diversity of the lunchtime research presentations. Several participants expressed their gratitude about being able to attend an event where they could learn more about the areas of research being pursued by faculty across the campus. Participants also noted that they appreciated seeing the passion that each speaker had for their area of scholarly activity.

The week concluded with a campus-wide student poster exhibit and social Friday afternoon which showcased more than 25 posters capturing the research and projects students have been involved with over the past year. Approximately 60 faculty, staff, and students visited the poster exhibit. The student presenters did an excellent job describing what they learned through their projects and how this newly gained information will impact their future clinical practices.

The IRC hopes that the Research Symposium is yet another step in fostering a learning community and creating a research culture on our campus.
