The CSI Undergraduate Conference (pictured) and the Graduate Research and Scholarship Conference underscore the importance of student/faculty collaboration.

The Annual CSI Undergraduate Conference: Research, Scholarship, and Performance (URC), as well as the Graduate Research and Scholarship Conference (GRC) took place on April 26 and May 10, respectively, in the College’s Center for the Arts.

Both events underscored the importance of the student/faculty collaboration in research, and giving students the opportunity to present their work, and learn from each other, as well.

This year’s URC had 216 research poster presenters (170 actual posters), five oral presentations, as well as performances from 22 Music students, and works by 50 students of the Visual Arts.

The 2018 GRC featured 71 posters and ten paper presentations.

Commenting on the importance of these conferences, CSI Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Gary Reichard said, “These conferences highlight the close interaction between the College’s exemplary faculty and our students, permitting students to gain valuable experience in presenting their work, and explaining it to conference visitors, helping them develop skills that will ensure their success in their future careers.”
