‘Posters in the Rotunda’ event showcases research from university students


JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — An event called Posters in the Rotunda showcased research from students from all eight of Mississippi’s public universities.

A resolution passed recognizes March 20 as Undergraduate Research Day in Mississippi.

The students suggest that their research examines some of Mississippi’s most pressing problems.

“The work being done by undergraduates with their mentors at the eight state universities is quite impressive.  This event will help legislators appreciate the contributions that the students are making to the state in so many areas, including economics, health care, and education,” said Dr. Marie Danforth, Chair of the Steering Committee for the Drapeau Center for Undergraduate Research at The University of Southern Mississippi and coordinator of the event.
