University hosts research event

NANAIMO – Two-day celebration of research at VIU allows public to check out what students and faculty have been up to.

A two-day celebration of research at Vancouver Island University this week allows the public to check out what students and faculty have been up to.

The event takes place today and Wednesday (March 26-27) in different parts of the cafeteria building and includes poster displays, oral presentations and a scholarship slam – where faculty and student researchers compete to see who can explain their research in the clearest, most concise way, as explaining research in lay person’s terms can be difficult.

On Tuesday, a poster display takes place in the upper cafeteria from 1-4 p.m. and oral presentations take place in the Royal Arbutus Room from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

On Wednesday, the poster display runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., oral presentations in the Royal Arbutus Room take place 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and a celebration of research in the Royal Arbutus Room runs from 4-6:30 p.m.

For more information, please call Roisin Mulligan in the university’s research and scholarly activity office at 250-753-3245, local 2575.
