More than 150 undergraduate students presented in the form of posters or talks at the 2013 Symposium for Promotion of Academic and Creative Enquiry (SPACE).
SPACE is a campus-wide venue for students to present their independent scholarly and creative projects, including senior projects, undergraduate research, poetry and short fiction, internship reports, class projects, and professional portfolios. It is an opportunity for students to present their recent work and for guests to view the wide range of quality undergraduate projects completed in the past year in the areas of the Humanities, the Natural Sciences, the Social Sciences, Engineering Technology, Nursing and Health Sciences, and Education.
This year, SPACE was sponsored by Conemaugh Health System and a Phi Kappa Phi Promotion of Excellence Grant.
