Research Day 2016 Recap

Office of the ProvostMay 2, 2016

Saturday, April 30 was Pacific's Research Day at the DeRosa University Center on the Stockton Campus. This event, combined for the second year with the Pacific Undergraduate Research and Creativity Conference (PURCC), showcased the research and creative endeavors of Pacific's faculty and graduate and undergraduate students via poster and oral presentations. And, for the first time this year, Eberhardt School of Business students participated by displaying their projects in the Product Innovation Fair.  All told, more than 150 poster and oral presentations were made and hundreds of faculty, staff, students and family members attended the event to celebrate the excellent scholarship taking place at Pacific. The complete abstract booklets are available here.

The midday program included remarks by Provost Pallavicini and the Faculty Research Lecturer Award recipient, Dr. Teresa Bergman, and the presentation of faculty and undergraduate awards by the Provost and Dr. Lydia Fox, Director of Undergraduate Research:

The Excellence in Undergraduate Research Mentoring Award was presented to Mary Kay Camarillo, Associate Professor of Civil Engineering in the School of Engineering and Computer Science.
