Undergraduate Research Day at the University of Montevallo

MONTEVALLO—The University of Montevallo will hold its 15th annual Undergraduate Research Day April 25 from noon until 3:30 p.m. in Harman Hall on the UM campus.

Students from all four colleges at Montevallo are invited to engage in research, scholarship and creative activity with faculty mentors, demonstrating their research via posters, oral and PowerPoint presentations. The goal of Undergraduate Research is to involve students in their own learning; to develop teamwork and pride; to enhance interdisciplinary learning; and to share in the exhilaration of discovery.

Topics of research vary widely, from “Retirement Planning” to “Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge;” from “Something Borrowed, Something Blue: The Social Evolution of Weddings” to “A Careful Look at the Gamma Function.”

At Montevallo, where more than 95 percent of the faculty holds the Ph.D. or other terminal degree in their field, almost all the advisers on the more than 60 research projects have doctoral degrees.
