Renée Crown University Honors Program Seniors to Present Capstone Projects
One hundred and thirty seniors in the Renée Crown University Honors Program will present their Capstone projects on Wednesday, May 4, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Hall of Languages.
The presentation panels will run concurrently in 11 rooms throughout the building, except during lunch (noon-1 p.m.), and are free and open to the University community.
Capstone projects are the culmination of three to four semesters of independent research, professional and creative work by students from across the schools and colleges of the University. Working with a faculty advisor, the students design, research and complete a significant project in their major field of study.
Among the topics that students are presenting on this year are corporate social responsibility and business activity; political communications; cationic peptides; cross-cultural adoption and identity; the history of sound design in advertising; offshoring of audit work; cell migratory patterns; education reform in Chile and the United States; conflict resources in sub-Saharan Africa; the effects of DRD4 and impulsivity on alcohol consumption; and resistance exercise and vascular and cognitive function.
Formats for the 15-20 minute presentations will include slide shows, websites, illustrations, films, readings and performance. Many of the students will also present or publish the results of their undergraduate research work at national and international conferences or in publications.
