Research Seminar Series
The Research Seminar Series was established to meet the need for a time and place for faculty and staff research information exchange. It began with our first research presentation on February 4, 2005. In its essence, the series is intended to build community and collegiality by setting the venue for you to communicate to others just what you do. It's casual and fun: a great way to relax, meet faculty from various disciplines and get a good feel for the University community at its best. We hope you'll join us!
The series runs Fridays from 3 to 4:30pm on the dates specified below. Approximately 16 events are held per academic year, with about 30 participants at each event. Attendance is growing! The ORSP staff appreciates your support! Don't miss these valuable opportunities to learn what others are doing on campus as well as share your own ideas!
2011-2012 was packed with great presentations! Special thanks goes out to all those who presented, and to all those who attended. We would also like to thank Dr. Declan Mulhall, who acts as the faculty coordinator for this series.
We're gearing up for the next round of Research Seminar Series events. Just scroll down to see the dates and venues for the 2012-2013 academic year. All events are held in Brennan Hall Room 509 (The Rose Room) unless otherwise indicated. Mark your calendars now! 'Hope to see you all there!
Are you interested in presenting? We're always interested in your research! Please contact Dr. Declan Mulhall at Declan.Mulhall@scranton.edu or Dr. Tabbi Miller-Scandle at Tabbi.Miller-Scandle@scranton.edu.
