Choosing Our Tomorrow: Global Issues of Peace, Equity and Sustainability
The Inver Hills Annual Research Conference (ARC) is a two-day event held each spring for students, faculty and staff to present their scholarly and creative research. The spring 2016 conference takes place Wednesday, April 20, and Thursday, April 21, in the Fine Arts building on the main campus of Inver Hills Community College in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. Our theme this year centers on exploring solutions that can lead to worldwide peace, equity and sustainability.
Keynote speakers at the conference are Bill Davnie, a retired 26-year career diplomat in the U.S. Foreign Service, and Reginaldo “Regi” Haslett-Marroquin, chief operating officer of the Main Street Project, a poultry-centered regenerative agricultural system in Northfield, Minnesota.

Calling all student presenters
The Annual Research Conference 2016 is seeking students wishing to submit proposals for oral, poster or portfolio presentations. Here’s your chance to showcase what you’ve studied while adding another dimension to your resume. Deadline to submit your presentation proposal is March 30, 2016.
“Our theme for the conference is Choosing Our Future: Global Issues of Peace, Equity and Sustainability,” said Lisa Tracy, Inver Hills biology faculty, “but the presentations do not have to fit the theme. While many faculty and students will want to present within the theme, any scholarly work or research is welcome. Research can be formal, semi-formal, creative or exploratory.”
