On Thursday, April 18, 2019, faculty from the University of Minnesota Crookston will participate in the inaugural faculty research fair. The research stands will be located in the Northern Lights Lounge, the Prairie Room, and the International Lounge, all part of the Sargeant Student Center.

Discover what the faculty at the University of Minnesota Crookston is doing. Community members are encouraged to attend and explore ways their organizations can collaborate with UMN Crookston faculty. Students in attendance will have the chance to interact with faculty, get hands-on experience, and learn about ways to fund their research. Undergraduate Research (UGR) is HIP. The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU) calls it a High Impact Practice.

Individuals interested in discussing opportunities for collaboration or potential projects contact Venugopal Mukku at mukku002@crk.umn.edu or Elizabeth Tollefson at ltollefs@crk.umn.edu.

Some of the topics that will be presented include composting, aquaponics, greenhouse gases, quality of life, bio girls, self-esteem, data mining, phishing, and much more.
