Annual Celebration to Spotlight Student Research, Achievements
More than 100 Providence College students will present research or works of art at the fourth annual Celebration of Student Scholarship and Creativity.
The event will be held on Wednesday, April 24, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Slavin Center and is sponsored by the Student Engagement Advisory Committee. It is free and open to the public.
The celebration was first held in 2010 with the support of a three-year, $250,000 Fostering a Culture of Student Engagement grant from the Davis Family Foundation. The College’s Strategic Plan encourages academic excellence by fostering experiential research and learning opportunities, as well as acknowledging those achievements.
Faculty across the College’s academic disciplines nominated undergraduate and graduate students who will present more than 85 projects. They include “The Honorable Order of Flappers: A Historical Discussion on Defining the Flapper,” “The Effects of Single and Coeducational Schools on Student and Teacher Behavior,” and “The Role of Cul3 as a Tumor Suppressor in Breast Cancer.”
