Six Ithaca College students presented their research at the Conference for Undergraduate Research in Communication at Rochester Institute of Technology on April 8, 2004.

The papers were selected by a blind-review committee and scheduled for presentation with research conducted by students from eight other colleges and universities. In order to be selected students had to present original research that aimed to make a direct contribution to knowledge in the field of communication. Student participation at the conference was sponsored by the Ithaca College Department of Speech Communication.

Two of the three all-conference awards given for best papers were awarded to Ithaca College students Tracy Portle and Alexa Kaiser.

The Ithaca College students, their majors, and the titles of their papers:

  • Michael Ahl, Speech Communication, "Argumentative Disparities Between Pro Se Litigants and the Legal System."
  • Rose Brecevich, Speech Communication, "Dr. De Soto: Xenophobia and Sexism for Kids: A Social Criticism."
  • Shane A. Dunn, Sports Information and Communication, "An Absence of Incongruent Goals in Applied Communication: A Precursor for Ineffective Communication on the Television Show Boston Public"
  • Alexa Kaiser, Culture and Communication, "A Critical Analysis of Contemporary Disney Heroines"
  • Tracy Portle, Speech Communication, "The Precautionary Principle and the Rhetoric of War"
