Undergraduate Research Day is Sept. 24

September 17, 2015

UR dayEveryone is invited to attend Undergraduate Research Day and see a collage of projects and presentations that have been carefully put together by UW-Whitewater students.

The event is 11:30 a.m.- 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, in the James R. Connor University Center Hamilton Room.

More than 40 students have been working diligently to present a wide array of projects including science, sociology, psychology and even art.

"Just the research itself enhances students' critical thinking and writing skills as well as increases their ability to research independently," said Whitney Supianoski, director of the McNair Scholars Program. "The benefit of presenting helps the students gain interdisciplinary literacy so that they can take their expertise and present it to a wide community."

With a campus so dedicated to this program, students receive the benefits of having a faculty mentor guide them through the undergraduate research process.

"In the McNair side alone, the faculty mentor is a crucial part in offering honest critique as well as support and encouragement for the students," said Supianoski.
