Papers must be submitted by April 2

Student researchers are invited to show off their hard work at the first-ever Javelina Research Symposium April 26 at the Memorial Student Union Building ballrooms.

Presentations may reflect completed or on-going research projects, and must be original in nature. Students may indicate a preference for oral or poster presentation format.

An awards ceremony will take place at the end of the day, at a reception hosted by the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.

The Javelina Research Symposium is funded through the Promoting Post-Baccalaureate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans (PPOHA) Title V grant program, “Strengthening Graduate Education at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.”

Dr. Dann Brown, dean of University College and the principle investigator of the grant, said the symposium has the chance to accomplish a number of goals.

"The Javelina Research Symposium seeks to promote the excellent student research on our campus. It also gives our students an opportunity to hone their presentation skills, and finally, it seeks to help our graduates become more successful as they leave campus and move into the workforce.

"We know that students who are more actively involved through research are more likely to achieve their dreams, academically and beyond," said Brown.

Submissions and More Information

  • Submission forms are available in room 137 of Eckhardt Hall.
