Slideshow: Students shine at Posters in the Rotunda
There was a daylong demonstration Wednesday (April 6) at the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison: a demonstration of the value of undergraduate research by top University students from across the state.
UW-Green Bay sent a delegation of 13 students to the eighth annual Posters in the Rotunda event in which student researchers in a variety of fields display their work and compare notes with legislators, Capitol visitors, UW System officials and their counterparts from other campuses. (Chancellor Thomas Harden and his wife, Cathy, center, posed with the group, above, and several UW-Green Bay faculty members made the trip, as well.) Lidia Nonn, director of the Institute for Research, said a half dozen or more Northeastern Wisconsin legislators stopped to visit with the students and learn more about their projects.
One exhibit in particular, involving research into high-impact practices for first-year students at UW-Green Bay, drew considerable interest from academic officials from other UW System campuses taking part. For a listing of the 13 UW-Green Bay student participants, and their seven poster topics, see our previous post.
