University of Hawaiʻi–West Oʻahu students and faculty are encouraged to participate in the Spring 2021 Student Research and Creative Works Symposium, which aims to provide an opportunity for dynamic student research learning experiences to be showcased on a variety of topics. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20, via Zoom.

“Ultimately, the goal of this campus-wide event is to increase the number of undergraduate UH West Oʻahu students with engaged scholarship and research experience,” said Dr. Camonia Graham-Tutt, symposium organizer. “This student-focused event will also demonstrate diversity in their respective fields of study.”

Graham-Tutt, assistant professor of Community Health at UH West Oʻahu, wants students to know that registration is now open and they can contact her via email at camonia@hawaii.edu to discuss their interests in presenting in this semester’s symposium.

“Student presenters will benefit by showcasing mentored research that displays both exploration and creativity,” she said.

Graham-Tutt also encourages faculty to join the symposium in one of the following three ways: with their classes where students are performing research, with their individual student research mentees, or as session moderators.

Faculty can participate in the event by emailing Graham-Tutt or by attending a faculty planning meeting, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March 23; email her to receive the Zoom meeting information.

This is the ninth symposium at UH West Oʻahu. The first virtual symposium in Spring 2020 welcomed 100 event attendees and for the following event in Fall 2020, there were more than 200 event attendees.

All UH West Oʻahu students, faculty, and staff, and the general public, are welcome to attend. Those who are interested in attending the virtual symposium may register in advance. A confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting will be sent after registering. For more information, email camonia@hawaii.edu.
