March 18, 2009 · Print This Article

Nashville, TN – The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at Tennessee State University is preparing for the 31st Annual University-Wide Research Symposium, March 30 through April 3, 2009.
This year’s symposium is slated to be an extraordinary five-day interdisciplinary celebration showcasing the range of faculty/staff-mentored student research that is being conducted across all academic disciplines at the University.  
The symposium highlights the range of student research through oral and poster research presentations, visual arts presentations, performing arts presentations (music, dance and theater) and demonstrations.  Workshops and tutorials will be available to participating students to help them develop competitive displays, exhibits and multi-media presentations. Students with winning presentations are eligible for awards up to $250.
With the theme, “Research: Celebrating Excellence” the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs has updated the symposium’s structure to enhance campus and community participation.  Recognizing that most research is not defined by one discipline of academic study, one of the symposium goals is to build bridges between multiple academic disciplines by creating a culture of inquiry and sharing areas of research interest.
The symposium invites students from all disciplines to submit research projects and creative work.
