No plans for Valentine’s Day? You have a date Feb. 12-13 with some of the brightest, talented and most creative people on campus participating in CSUDH’s 15th annual Student Research Day.
Blending serious academic research across an array of disciplines with creativity, social interaction and intense but collegial competition, SRD involves undergraduate and graduate students under the supervision of a faculty member assembling an oral presentation, poster, or roundtable presentation on the topic of their choice. The three categories are judged by a panel with first-place winners receiving $100 and second-place winners receive $50.
More important, SRD allows students to network and get their work recognized by professionals in their field. Plus, it looks really good on a resume, and up to 10 oral presentations could be selected to compete in the 34th annual CSU Statewide Student Research Competition at CSU East Bay this year.
About 375 presenters and faculty judges participated last year, filling the second floor of the LSU with projects bearing titles ranging from . Perceived Competency in Male Dominated Jobs among Gender Nonconforming Women vs Gender Conforming Women (health science) to My Dad called Him a “Devil Worshipper”: Religious Deconversion Experiences of Students at CSU Dominguez Hills (sociology).
SRD is still in need of faculty volunteers. Fill out this form to sign up to be a judge.
