The 17th annual Faculty and Staff Research and Creativity Fall Forum will be held Thursday, October 27, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Houston Gym.
During the two-and-a-half hour forum, diverse examples of research—from best practices for teaching adult learners to the implementation of a student health ambassador at Buffalo State—will be on view. More than 100 stations, composed of posters, handouts, and one-on-one discussions, will be included.
“Highlighting faculty and staff scholarly and creative work is an important acknowledgment of the significant time, energy, and talent that has gone into the production of this work,” said President Katherine Conway-Turner in the program’s forum. “It is also important to appreciate and commend the diversity of research that exists across campus.”
The Research and Creativity Council and the Academic Affairs Office in conjunction with Research and Economic Development and Sponsored Programs Operations, support the forum. As in past years, the goal is to develop, encourage, and support faculty and staff research and creativity and to make collaborative research endeavors and grants more accessible.
“Colleagues sharing research and creative accomplishments remind everyone of the richness and diversity of our scholarly endeavors,” said Provost Melanie L. Perreault. “Outcomes shared in the forum cover a wide spectrum of basic and applied research and show evidence of Buffalo State’s commitment to economic development and engagement with the community.”
For members of the Buffalo State community, the event also provides a convenient and fun way to get a glimpse of the varied research taking place across campus.
Provost Conway-Turner will offer welcoming remarks at 12:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided for all participants and attendees. The event is open to the campus community. All students are welcome and encouraged to attend.
