Annapolis 101 Highlights USM Student Achievement and Research, Feb. 28
ADELPHI, Md. (February 21, 2008) - The University System of Maryland (USM) Student
Council and Council of University System Faculty will host their annual
"Annapolis 101" day of student advocacy and undergraduate research on Thursday,
February 28, 2008.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
undergraduate students and faculty representing the system's 11 universities
will present posters representing the results of the students' various
research projects. From 6 p.m.
to 8 p.m., they host a reception for legislators. Both events
will be held in the President's Conference Room West of the Miller Senate Office Building, 11 Bladen Street, Annapolis, MD.
"Undergraduate research conveys
the active, engaged, and collaborative nature of learning on our campuses,"
said USM Chancellor William E. Kirwan. "When our state's leaders and
policymakers see the breadth and depth of the research conducted by our
undergraduates, they can better understand how the state's investment in higher
education is transforming young lives today and making Maryland's economic future even stronger."
