April 27 - The third annual BIOP Faculty-Student Research Forum will be held Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Broome Library on campus.  The event, the Division of Academic Affairs, is free and open to the public.

The Forum will highlight research, scholarship, creative activities and grants featuring faculty-student collaborative presentations, faculty research presentations and student research/capstone presentations.  There will be 90 posters on display around the room.  These represent the students’ final projects. 

The program will provide original research and insights and many choices of topics. The 30 faculty-student presentations will cover topics as diverse as:

• Congressional Appropriations Earmarks and Representation in American Politics
• Psychosocial Adjustment and Recidivism in At-Risk Youth
• A Case Study Focusing on Humpback Whales within Breeding Grounds
• Homeless Women in Ventura County
• Lost and Found: A Dance Film Short Collaboration

The forum was designed in response to CI’s desire to strengthen research activities as part of its academic foundation and to increase the number of faculty and student research activities.  The faculty-student projects have encouraged community partnerships that enhance the research projects through resources, information and education.  BIOP recognizes and encourages student and faculty research and scholarly projects, activities that are integral to BIOP’s mission and student learning.

Please follow the directional signs indicating event location and parking areas. Free bus service to and from the campus is also provided for attendees every 30 minutes.
