Cleveland State University's College of Arts and Sciences Shines at Undergraduate Summer Research Poster Session
Cleveland State University's Office of Research hosted its highly anticipated annual Undergraduate Summer Research Poster Session on Thursday, September 21, 2023. This event, a hallmark of academic excellence, showcased the remarkable research endeavors undertaken by our dedicated students and faculty.
"We are CSU!" resonated through the venue as the College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college at the university, made a substantial impact with 25 diverse research groups participating in the event. The enthusiasm and dedication of these groups exemplified the spirit of innovation and inquiry that defines Cleveland State University.
The Undergraduate Summer Research Poster Session serves as a platform for our academic community to present their cutting-edge research and engage in meaningful discussions with peers and experts from various fields. It fosters collaboration, encourages interdisciplinary exploration, and celebrates the pursuit of knowledge.
The event featured a wide array of research topics, ranging from the natural sciences to the humanities, reflecting the College of Arts and Sciences' commitment to providing a holistic education that addresses the multifaceted challenges of today's world.
Dean Andrew Kersten of the College of Arts and Sciences said that this year’s poster session "Illustrated the power of hands-on, engaged learning. These students not only conducted cutting-edge research, but they also were able to articulate their methods and findings to a general audience. Their work is already having an impact in their disciplines and in our community."
Cleveland State University extends its gratitude to all participants, attendees, and supporters for making the annual Undergraduate Summer Research Poster Session a resounding success. We look forward to even more groundbreaking research and collaboration in the years to come.
