MTSU SCHOLARS WEEK SETS SUBMISSION DEADLINE OF FEB. 11
(MURFREESBORO) — Faculty and students are preparing for Scholars Week 2008, which will be held March 31-April 4, organizers said.
A key date to remember is Monday, Feb. 11, which is the deadline for online abstracts for poster and multimedia presentations to be submitted to http://mtsu32.mtsu.edu:11202/Scholars_Week/ScholarsForm.asp.
Planned Scholars Week activities will include talks, readings, performances, posters and multimedia, as well as invited speakers and luncheons.
Faculty members are being asked to encourage all students to participate – either as presenters or observers – in events during the week, said Dr. Andrienne Friedli, professor of chemistry, assistant to the vice provost for research and committee technical chair.
“Scholars Week is a great celebration and demonstration of the various roles that research and creative activities play at MTSU,” said Dr. Kaylene Gebert, executive vice president and provost, and Scholars Week committee chair. “Campus-wide participation shows the vitality, high quality and pervasiveness of scholarship throughout our academic community. The organizing committee is doing a fantastic job, and we encourage everyone to mark the dates and events on their calendars.”
