Nancy Kreiter Student Research Day

At Notre Dame of Maryland University, one of the hallmarks of our rich educational environment is the opportunity for students to participate in research in their fields of interest. Notre Dame students perform in concerts, exhibit original art, create poster presentations to describe scientific research, and analyze poetry in literary papers. Faculty members mentor and at times collaborate in the development of these projects.

On April 25, Fourier will become a space for papers to be presented, songs to be performed, and posters to be explained. Students in any of the University's divisions are eligible to submit a proposal online. This student research forum has been named to honor Dr. Nancy Kreiter, an associate professor of biology who was a strong advocate for undergraduate research. In fact, she was part of a faculty task force in the spring of 2007 that explored ways students and faculty could develop and deepen opportunities for student research. Initiating a forum to share student research was one of their suggestions.

This year, awards will be given for the Best Responses to the Common Reading, In the Time of the Butterflies. These will include: Best Essay on the Common Reading by a first-year student; Best Research Paper based on a topic related to the Common Reading; and Best Creative Response to the Common Reading.

The Nancy Kreiter Student Research Day will conclude with a picnic supper, complete with music and awards for the best presentations in each of the divisions.
