Some 257 students will present research projects during Student Research Day, Tuesday, April 5 at Purdue University Northwest’s Calumet campus.
Approximately 145 projects, the work of 175 undergraduates and 82 graduate students, will be presented and displayed from 8:30 a.m. to 4:10 p.m.
Learning through self-discovery
“Student Research Day is indicative of learning through self-discovery,” Purdue Calumet Chancellor and PNW Chancellor-Designate Thomas L. Keon said. “Projects researched and presented by our students represent learning that produces solutions. Research enhances lifelong learning and self-reflection.”
Students will showcase research they have advanced during the past academic year. Each presented project will include a written summary and an oral or poster presentation. Student Research Day also includes a student panel discussion at 12:30 p.m.

PNW White Lodging Professor of Finance and Director of the Executive MBA Program Pat Obi will deliver the keynote address at a late afternoon dinner and awards program.
The Purdue Northwest Office of Research and Graduate Studies, Honors College, Experiential Learning program, Writing Center, McNair Program and Student Research Office are sponsors of Student Research Day.
