10th Annual

Student Research Conference

8:30 am - 6 pm

Burkle Building

 

We seek to engage students from all disciplines within the
Claremont consortium and beyond in a dialogue about the essential issues affecting
our communities, nation, and the collective global society. In addition,
the conference encourages students to utilize the unique qualities of their
disciplines to ponder/generate possible solutions to these issues.

 

In addition to presentations, one section of the conference will feature panel discussions facilitated by CGU faculty (within their area of expertise). Including areas relevant to: Politics and Policy, Behavioral and Organization Development, Management and Non-profit Management, Religion, Education, Information Systems, Global Health and other disciplines across the Claremont Consortium.
