UNO to Hold First Student Research and Creative Activity Fair
Omaha - The first Student Research and Creative Activity Fair is slated for March 24-26, at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
This centennial year, in conjunction with the annual Honors Program Senior Symposium, UNO has invited all undergraduate and graduate students to participate in the first Research and Creative Activity Fair.
The fair will be held in the Milo Bail Student Center from 5-9 p.m. on March 24 and 25. The three-day event will conclude on March 26, with an awards program and keynote address by Royce Engstrom, provost and vice president for academic affairs at the University of Montana and a UNO alumnus. The keynote address and awards ceremony will begin at 7 p.m.
“As a student-focused university, UNO provides a variety of quality research and creative activity opportunities for its students,” said Harmon Maher, interim associate vice chancellor for research and creative activity.
Poster presentations and exhibits will be on display each evening. Oral presentations and performances are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. A special session will be dedicated for UNO Honors Symposium presentations. A detailed schedule will be available after March 9 at www.unomaha.edu/spr/research.php.
The events are free and open to the public. Call (402) 554-2286 for more information.
UNO is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The celebration recognizes the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
