Ithaca College Undergraduates Present At National Research Conference

ITHACA, NY — Ithaca College was well-represented at the 2010 National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), held at the University of Montana in April. The NCUR review committee selected 25 projects from IC students for presentation at the conference, which is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity in all fields of study.

Over 30 representatives from Ithaca College attended the 2010 conference, including 18 students who presented their research in the fields of African-American studies, anthropology, biology, chemistry, economics, gerontology, health promotion, mathematics, music history, physics, psychology, sport management, strategic communication and television-radio. A total of 38 students were involved in the selected projects.

“We were pleased with the diversity of schools and disciplines represented in this year’s student delegation,” said associate provost Bashar Hanna. “We are very proud of these students for their outstanding efforts and grateful to their faculty advisors for their support of our students’ undergraduate research.”

Ithaca College has been selected by the NCUR Board of Governors to serve as the host site for the conference in 2011. More than 2,000 students and faculty members from colleges and universities throughout the country will gather on the IC campus March 31–April 2 for a series of seminars, performances, poster presentations and special events. Grammy Award–winning saxophonist and jazz music educator Branford Marsalis will serve as the keynote speaker at the conference.
