The Fall 2018 Undergraduate Research Poster Session took place on September 6, 2018 from 11am - 2pm in the Student Center Atrium. Students, faculty, and staff were invited to attend the poster session, which provided students the opportunity to discuss their research with the CSU community.
Students and faculty discussed research that was funded by the Undergraduate Summer Research Award (USRA) Program and the McNair Scholars Program. The session included a total of 74 posters from six CSU colleges. Sadé Vega earned first place (a $200 gift card) for her project "Assessing the Social, Emotional, and Mental Health Needs in Urban Schools to Support Academic Achievement." She conducted her research under the supervision of Professor Dakota King-White, an assistant professor in the Department of Counseling, Administration, Supervision, and Adult Learning (CASAL), and Mr. Nicholas Petty, Director of Undergraduate Inclusive Excellence.
Michael Dodrill and Bridget Coyne earned second place (a $150 gift card) for their project "Archaeological Investigations at the Fort Hill Earthwork Complex."

There were many high-quality posters that provided an impressive demonstration of the scholarship and faculty-student collaborations at CSU. The Office of Research congratulates all of the students and their mentors, and encourages undergraduate and graduate students to continue to be actively engaged in research.
