Agenda posted for Undergraduate Research Symposium

A&T’s first Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held Wednesday September 22.  The agenda is posted below as a PDF document. Students will be presenting from 9:45 a.m. to noon and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. For those who can’t join us for the entire event, the Division of Research encourages you to drop in for any part that you can attend.

In addition to 45 or so student presenters, speakers will include Dr. John W. Hardin, executive director of the N.C. Office of Science & Technology; and Dr. Alan Letton, interim associate vice chancellor for research and dean of graduate studies.  Chancellor Harold L. Martin, Sr.; Provost Linda T. Adams; and Dr. Celestine A. Ntuen, interim vice chancellor for research & economic development, also will speak.

The symposium broadens the opportunity for A&T undergraduates to engage in scholarly activity in a way that previously has been mostly reserved for graduate students.  And it’s a great opportunity for faculty, staff and grad students to support the next generation of Aggie researchers.  Please join us on Wednesday!
