2015 UMFK Scholars' Symposium Theme: "Sustainability & Cultural Diversity"

UMFK President Wilson G. Hess will welcome everyone in the Fox Auditorium at 8:15 a.m. Keynote speaker Dr. Stefan Cairns, Associate Professor of Biology at University of Central Missouri. He will begin his presentation at 8:30 a.m. also in Fox Auditorium.

Beginning at 9:15, in Fox, there will be student presentations until 10:30 a.m.

At 10:30 to 11 a.m. in the auditorium, a new feature has been added to the Scholars' Symposium a 5-minute Lightning Talk by UMFK five faculty members.

Lightning talks: Are 5-minute presentations that focus on a single topic, example, idea, project, or technique. Lightning Talks do not attempt to cover all aspects of their subject matter, but present one facet of the idea clearly and succinctly. The topic will coincide with this year's theme: "Sustainability and Cultural Diversity."

At 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lunch will be served, for those who registered.

At 1 p.m. students will present their poster/projects, which dessert will be served, at the Sports Center. This session will last until 2 p.m.
