Each fall, the Trust and a different Northwest private college or university co-host a research conference associated with the Murdock College Science Research Program. The conference focuses on sharing and advancing new knowledge in the natural sciences created or discovered through collaborative faculty-student research.
Attendance at this conference is by invitation. Oral and poster research presentations by students form the core of the conference, and a talk by a nationally recognized research scientist is also presented.
To request an invitation or additional information, email Dr. Moses Lee, Program Director for Research and Science, or call 360-694-8415.
2017 CONFERENCE INFORMATION:
REGISTER NOW (deadline to register is October 6, 2017)
The 2017 conference will take place on November 10-11 at the Spokane Convention Center in Spokane, Washington, and will be co-hosted with Whitworth University. The theme for this year’s conference is “Expanding Undergraduate Research Opportunities.”
Check out the preliminary agenda for the conference here.
The theme for this year’s Faculty Enrichment Workshop is “CURE: Current Landscape and Ideas for Future Innovation.” CURE stands for Curricular-based Undergraduate Research Experience. The formal workshop will be held immediately following the conference on November 11. However, since seating will be limited at the workshop and not everyone can participate, we are organizing a poster session on this topic as a preamble to the workshop for faculty and staff only. This session will be held during the social networking time for faculty and staff on Friday evening immediately after the banquet and keynote presentation.
