SAGE 2019 Awards

The 11th annual SAGE Student Research Conference featured almost 200 poster presentations and 40 oral presentations. Many faculty, staff, and students served as volunteers and judges to help make the SAGE conference a success. In particular, we give special thanks to Betty Ortiz and Michelle Hasendonckx for their dedication. Without them, SAGE would not be possible.  We also thank SAGE Publishing for their generous support of student research and creative activities at CI. Congratulations to all of our students for participating today and modeling the nature of creativity and inquiry. Below are the students who won awards at the Student Research Conference.
