Dozens of Mount Saint Mary College scholars showcased a semester’s worth of their hard work at the Investigating Research on Campus (iROC) symposium on Thursday, May 2.
 
Students from many majors presented course-related, honors, or independent research projects in poster form to the campus community.
 
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,” explained Evan Merkhofer, assistant professor of Biology.
 
The iROC series is coordinated by Merkhofer and Jennifer Park, assistant librarian for Access and Outreach services. 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.
