Conference to showcase intl. student research

From Catherine Ngo ’08:

The Office of International Studies and World Learning’s SIT Study Abroad are organizing a conference at Wesleyan on student research abroad. Basically, lots of Wesleyan students do cool projects all over the planet, come home, and then no one else ever hears about the projects.

The OIS is hoping this conference will give students a chance to tell their professors (and friends) about their independent study projects or other research abroad. We are interested in your particular research experiences in other countries, the creative ways you have solved challenges (or made the most of failures) in your research, and how what you learned is shaping what you’re doing back at Wes.

The conference is scheduled for Friday, April 25 and Saturday, April 26.

If you are interested in presenting your research at this conference, please submit the attached document to the director of OIS, Dr. Carolyn Sorkin by Friday, April 4, 2008.

Even if you are not interested in presenting a research project but are still interested in helping out, please let OIS know!
