Twenty-one Black Hills State University students presented their research at the 2011 National Conference for Undergraduate Research (NCUR) held at Ithaca College in Ithaca, N.Y.
NCUR, an annual conference dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study, is the largest professional research symposium of its type. Each year approximately 3,000 undergraduate students from all fields and disciplines gather to share the knowledge they have gained through their research projects. Student presenters also have the opportunity to publish their work in the Conference Proceedings, which are distributed across the nation.
BHSU was one of 250 institutions from across the country that participated in this year’s conference.
Dr. Vincent King, professor of humanities, and Dr. Aris Karagiorgakis, assistant professor of psychology, who praised the students for their dedication to research, accompanied the group to NCUR.
"This was an eye-opening experience for all students. It was a perfect forum for the exchange of intellectual ideas, and this experiential learning opportunity will undoubtedly better prepare them for graduate school," noted Karagiorgakis.
The BHSU students attending the conference presented research across nine disciplines – biology, communications, education, English, environmental studies and sciences, geography and earth sciences, literature, political science, and psychology.
