Faculty and students will trade places as 400 undergraduate students and professors from the Pacific Northwest converge at Linfield to share research findings with one another.Twenty-five private liberal arts colleges in the region will participate.
The annual Murdock College Science Research Conference, held Nov. 12 and 13, offers science and math students an opportunity to share oral presentations and research posters, and offers faculty an opportunity to provide mentoring. The gathering is modeled on professional academic conferences.
Sponsored by the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust, the event is designed for private four-year liberal arts colleges in the region and is hosted by a different school each year. The goal is to strengthen faculty and undergraduate student research in the sciences.
