Annual Research Conference 2019

Living Together, Identity, Community, and You • April 17 & 18, 2019

The Annual Research Conference at Inver Hills Community College takes place Wednesday, April 17, and Thursday, April 18, 2019, on the college’s main campus in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. The two-day event is held each spring for students, faculty and staff to share their scholarly and creative work via oral or poster presentations.

The theme for this year’s conference is Living Together, Identity, Community, and You. Julie Luker, EdD, psychology faculty, serves as co-chair of the Annual Research Conference 2019 Committee (Kiran Seth, biology faculty, co-chairs the committee). Julie invites all members of the campus community to register their presentation proposals by Monday, March 25, 2019, and show their support for academic expression at Inver Hills by participating in conference activities.

“The annual research conference is an excellent professional opportunity for students, faculty and staff,” Julie said. “This is a chance for everyone to be recognized for their academic endeavors, and to recognize the work of others. At the same time, this conference provides a wonderful opportunity to build community on campus.”

“We know from years of research that opportunities to engage in original creative and scholarly work deepen learning and encourage persistence. I’m excited to see how our students apply their learning to understand subjects that interest them.”
