The 24th annual Goshen College Student Academic Symposium will take place Wednesday, April 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Faculty will be also recognized for promotions and recently-published work at the event.

The keynote session, “Rigor and Right Action: Supporting Human Dignity in Research” by Dr. Laura Miller-Groff, University of Notre Dame, will begin at 9 a.m. in the Church-Chapel Sanctuary. Following the keynote speaker, promoted and recently-published faculty will be recognized at 9:30 a.m., with a reception to follow. Faculty being recognized include Sara Patrick, associate professor of mathematics and Kendra Yoder, associate professor of Sociology and WGS program director.

The presentations consist of more than 100 Goshen College students and faculty members presenting original research and speaking on panels.

Every year, the Academic Symposium aims to acknowledge original undergraduate, graduate and faculty research that plays a fruitful and essential role in GC’s academic programs while also providing a professional development opportunity for students to practice their presentation and research skills. It’s also an opportunity to engage with students, faculty and staff across Goshen College, as well as with the local community, on a broad range of academic research and creative works.

For the first time, GC is suspending classes for the day to enable all students and faculty to participate in this celebration of academic achievements across all disciplines.
