Student and Faculty Scholarship to be Celebrated During Husson University’s Eighth Annual Research and Scholarship Day
Date:4/20/2017

Husson University will be celebrating students and faculty members’ contributions to the scientific and clinical research community’s growing body of knowledge during its Eighth Annual Research and Scholarship Day on Thursday, April 20, 2017 in the Gracie Theatre and the adjacent Darling Atrium. During the event, undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members from all of the university’s colleges and schools will share the results of their many capstone research projects, graduate theses and other activities devoted to understanding our world.

This year’s plenary speaker is the Dr. Phil Grant Professor of Management & Economics, at Husson University’s College of Business, Steven R. Cunningham, Ph.D.

“Perhaps the dominant element driving large, developed, industrial economies is the way the public forms its perceptions of the state of the economy and financial markets,” says Cunningham. “The flow of information and the way people process that information governs their economic decisions, like those regarding employment, purchases, and standards of living.”

Cunningham’s presentation will focus on his research in the role of perceptions and expectations in our economy. The presentation will culminate in a discussion about Cunningham’s latest paper on the “Everyday Price Index” and the way the public forms its ideas about prices and inflation.

Immediately following Cunningham’s presentation will be a recognition ceremony honoring the best research posters. A reception in the Darling Atrium will conclude the event.

“Every year, Husson students and faculty members make important contributions to our understanding of the world. Research and Scholarship Day is an annual opportunity for us to recognize their efforts. Their works helps us better understand the issues, materials, and processes that affect our lives every day. The depth and diversity of students’ original thinking is a testament to the outstanding education we offer to aspiring professionals,” said Lynne Coy-Ogan, Ed.D., senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at Husson University.

Research and Scholarship Day kicks off at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 20, at the Darling Atrium in the Beardsley Meeting House with a display of posters that summarize many of the scholarly activities undertaken during the past year. This is followed at 10:30 a.m. by oral platform presentations in the Gracie Theatre where research originators share their findings. From 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., research authors will be present to stand by their posters and answer questions about their findings. Following Dr. Cunningham’s plenary address, there will be a concluding reception and presentation at 2:30 p.m. recognizing the Best Student Research Posters as judged by a select group of Husson University faculty and staff members. Top scoring student posters will be awarded gift certificates to the Husson University Bookstore.
