Todd DiaconTodd Diacon, Ph.D. Senior Vice President Academic Affairs and Provost Kent State University

"Students learn the most when they engage in their own searches for knowledge and discovery. Our program in undergraduate research and the symposium stimulate this journey, and I am proud both of our students and of the faculty and staff who guide their education.

The Symposium is an opportunity for our students to share the results of a topic they explored in depth with the entire Kent State community."

Sponsored by The Office of the Provost, Honors College, Research and Sponsored Programs, Undergraduate Studies, and University Libraries.
