iROC symposium celebrates student research

December 08, 2016

Mount students presented more than 30 research projects and the recent iROC symposium.

Mount Saint Mary College students showcased a semester of research at the Investigating Research on Campus (iROC) symposium on December 1.

Students in many majors presented more than 30 course-related, honors, or independent research projects in poster form to the campus community.

“We really want to show the students the accessibility of research on campus,” explained series coordinator Evan Merkhofer, assistant professor of biology. “Research is a way for students to see a different side of their field.”

The goal of iROC is to “provide a forum for Mount faculty, staff, and students to showcase their research endeavors with both Mount Saint Mary College and the local community in a manner easily understood by attendees,” said Merkhofer. Presentations include research proposals, initial data collection, and completed research projects.

Mount Saint Mary College is ranked a Top-Tier University by U.S. News & World Report, and offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs for careers in healthcare, business, education, social services, communications, media, and the liberal arts.
