Annual Research Symposium and Author Recognition Program is May 7 – 9

LEWISTON, Idaho - The 8th Annual Lewis-Clark State College Research Symposium in collaboration with the 7th Annual Author Recognition Program is May 7 - 9 at Lewis-Clark State College’s Williams Conference Center (WCC).  The symposium is free and open to the campus community and the public.

This year there are 261 student researchers presenting from 17 programs and six college divisions.  The symposium will take place over a three-day period with three keynote addresses:

  • Daniel Mayton from Social Sciences presenting, Publishing Without the Threat of Perishing: Reflections on an Academic Career with Undergraduates
  • Amy Canfield, Social Sciences and Heather Van Mullem, Education and Kinesiology, presenting, “You Hit Like a Girl?’: Gender and Image in High School Yearbooks
  • A keynote panel discussion facilitated by Gene Straughan and Angela Wartel, Justice Studies, on Alumni Experiences in the Criminal Justice System

New this year are three poster sessions presenting student research from Justice Studies, Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and Psychology.  These posters will be available for viewing in the Clearwater/Snake Room and the WCC lobby all three days.

According to Dr. Brian Christenson, Symposium Director and Journal Editor, the mission of the LCSC Research Symposium and Student Research Excellence Journal is to enhance student academic achievement and professional development, and award research excellence by providing the opportunity for students to present their research in a symposium.  Additionally, students have the opportunity to publish their research through an online research journal forum.

A display of the creative works of LCSC faculty and staff authors who have submitted their work to the 7th Annual Author Recognition Program will be displayed in the foyer of the WCC.  This program was a success last year with over 100 creative author displays.  The goal of the Author Recognition Program is to provide a forum for faculty, administration, and staff to present their publications each year, including books, book chapters, journal articles, editorials, conference papers, patents, and media.

Come celebrate the amazing student and faculty research at The 8th Annual Lewis-Clark State College Research Symposium.
