Why should I pursue and present research?

For the student, research bridges the gap between knowledge and experience and provides for career exploration and development. For the discipline, research produces original results and contributes to the body of knowledge and creative works within the discipline.

As a presenter in the 2021 SRC, you will share the results of your research with the larger academic community, enliven the intellectual climate on campus, and stimulate discussions and collaborations within and across disciplines, all while developing skills important to your long-term personal and professional success.
