UDaily: Students to present findings from summer research at event Aug. 14

The fifth annual celebratory symposium for the University of Delaware's Summer Scholars program will take place from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 14, at Clayton Hall.

The event marks the culmination of the 10-week summer program and will consist of poster sessions and oral presentations throughout the day.

Leading up to it, more than 350 UD students have collaborated with their faculty mentors and, in many cases, with other undergraduate and graduate students, exploring and creating knowledge and learning how original research takes place.

Many students have worked with a wide range of external partners, translating research into action that both benefits community agencies and provides the students themselves with deepened understandings of the ways in which they can both contribute and learn from their service.

The plenary speaker for this year’s event will be James Collins, Virginia M. Ullman Professor of Natural History and the Environment at Arizona State University. His research centers on understanding the origin, maintenance and reorganization of morphological variation within species.
