Thinking Matters

Thinking Matters is an annual student research symposium that showcases innovative learning and creativity.

High-quality student-faculty research collaborations and opportunities are available to both graduate and undergraduate students. It’s an event that allows students and faculty to share their work with each other, their colleagues, and the general public. Students are encouraged to participate and present their research as posters or oral sessions. This year’s Thinking Matters is scheduled for Friday, April 20, 2018
