Wolfe Institute Sponsors Conference for Senior Students to Showcase Research

On Thursday, May 3 and Monday May 7, graduating seniors in the Scholars Program Seminar will be presenting their research as part of the Zicklin Honors Academy Conference.

Over the course of the two-day conference, 18 students will present papers on everything from “The Medicinal Powers of Milk” to “The Struggle Against Globalization and Neoliberal Policy in Mexico and Bolivia.”

In the seminar, Honors Academy students take a two-semester course with the holder of the Carol Zicklin Chair, presently occupied by Lee Quinby. Quinby will be finishing up her two-year term at the end of the semester. In the course, students learn to do in-depth research and analyze a topic that stirs their curiosity and motivates their desire to share what they learn with others. Students met independently with a faculty adviser in their research field throughout the year.

The conference will be held in the Student Union Building in the Jefferson-Williams Lounge on Thursday May 3 from 12:15 to 6:00p.m. and in the Alumni Lounge on Monday May 7 from 12:15 to 3:00p.m.
