An on-campus symposium showcasing student knowledge in the art of research methodology, scientific reasoning, and giving skillful presentations is scheduled for Tuesday, April 23, in the Campus Center Multi-Purpose Room (C208).

The Spring 2019 Research Symposium’s primary aim is to provide an opportunity for practice-based education through presentations on a variety of research topics including: research methods, education, justice, business, sociology and STEM related fields. Ultimately the goal of the symposium is to increase the number of UH West O’ahu students with research presentation experience while incorporating diversity in the field of research.

Students typically take part of the symposium through class in which they are enrolled.  In the past this has included students taking classes in Elementary Math Methods, the Sociology of Sexuality, Social Studies Methods as well as students presenting senior projects or posters developed out of student teaching experiences. There will be student speakers and there is a judging of student research with UH West Oʻahu items as prizes

Students who are not enrolled in classes participating in the symposium and having some research experience can participate on their own by contacting Dr. Camonia Graham-Tutt, an assistant professor of Community Health at camonia@hawaii.edu..

About 72 students participated in the Fall 2018 Research Symposium, which included a presentation of research posters, including those from the Kikaha Undergraduate Research Program, Public Administration, Education, Business and Science.
