Anderson University To Host Scholars’ Day April 26


Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University is set to host the 13th annual Scholars’ Day April 26 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Reardon Auditorium lobby. This year’s event will feature 63 students presenting 40 different research posters.

“Students at AU often do research or other scholarly work,” said Dr. Chad Wallace, dean of AU’s School of Science and Engineering. “As an academic community, we value good scholarship and want to recognize the efforts and results of these students. Students have taken abstract theoretical topics and added an experiential, hands-on aspect to their learning. This is the AU way.”

Students have spent the majority of the academic year working on their research and many have presented at other conferences. Scholars’ Day is their chance to present in front of their AU community.

AU’s first Scholars’ Day began in 2010 when Dr. Chad Wallace, suggested that the university set aside time to highlight current student research within any academic area on campus, in addition to faculty taking their own students to various conferences for research presentations.

The broader Madison County community is invited to Scholars’ Day to join in celebrating the accomplishments of these students and the faculty who support them.

Anderson University is on a mission to educate students for lives of faith and service, offering more than 60 undergraduate majors, 30 three-year degrees, 20 NCAA Division III intercollegiate sports, alongside adult and graduate programs. The private, liberal arts institution is fully accredited and recognized among top colleges for its business, computer science, cybersecurity, dance, engineering, nursing, and teacher education programs.
