More than 40 Anderson University undergraduate students will present research during the 5th annual AU Scholars' Day on April 29 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Reardon Auditorium Lobby. The event will feature poster presentations from a wide range of academic disciplines at AU.

"AU Scholars' Day demonstrates the excellence of our AU students and their faculty mentors," said Provost Dr. Marie Morris. "Each year I learn something new from our students and come away impressed with their enthusiasm and ability to articulate their scholarly projects in accessible ways. I'd love to see AU faculty, students, and staff, as well as our friends from the City of Anderson/Madison Co. come see for themselves."

Participants create abstracts of their research, which are then compiled into a program booklet for attendees. [View and print the flyer for the 2014 Scholars' Day.]
