Summer SURFers Celebrate Success

Twenty-two students and nine faculty brought the first Summer SURF faculty-mentored student research experience to a close on August 2, 2017. At the reception in the Broome Library’s Archives Courtyard, students received participation certificates and described their research for the 60 audience members. Yosduan Ramos was awarded the first Terri and Mark Lisagor Fellowship for his outstanding performance in the SURF community. “The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program has been a life-changing experience for me,” Ramos said.

Now Archiving Student Research

The Student Research Advisory Committee invites you to the beta site for the Student Research Archive.

This site allows CI to archive student research projects from SAGE, the Student Research Competition, and disciplinary conferences where students present their research.

The “Contribute an Item” feature that allows students to submit their materials with minimal intervention from the site manager. In part, this allows us to document the impact of IRA funding. The Committee generously funds much of the travel in which students engage.

Currently, most of the contents posters and presentations from the first eight SAGE conferences. We also have photos from several years of SAGE, all of the SAGE Conference programs, some of the papers from the CSU Student Research Competition.

Constructive suggestions or files you would like to contribute, email us.
