Murdock College Science Research Conference
Each fall, the Trust and a different Northwest private college or university co-host a research conference that is associated with the Murdock College Science Research Program. The conference focuses on sharing and advancing new knowledge in the natural sciences that were created or discovered through collaborative faculty-student research at the eleven MCSRP funded colleges and universities in the Pacific Northwest.
The 2016 conference will take place on November 4 & 5 at the Spokane Convention Center in Spokane, Washington, and it will be co-hosted with Gonzaga University.
Wide participation is also extended to science students and faculty from all of the private colleges and universities in the five-state area. Oral and poster research presentations by students form the core of the conference; a talk by a major national research figure is also presented.
Attendance at this conference is by invitation, but private colleges and universities in the Pacific Northwest are encouraged to request an invitation from the Trust if they have science students and faculty who are involved in research and who would like to attend.
Registration for the 2016 Murdock College Science Research Conference will be available soon.
“Supporting Women Faculty in STEM Fields” is the focus of the Faculty Enrichment Workshop that will be held during the afternoon of November 5th on the campus of Gonzaga University, at the conclusion of the 2016 Murdock College Science Research Conference. Dr. Mia Bertagnolli, Professor of Biology of Gonzaga University, and Dr. Sarah Kirk, Professor of Chemistry and Associate Dean of Faculty Development of Willamette University, are co-chairs of this workshop. To assist them in planning for the workshop, Drs. Bertagnolli and Kirk are conducting a survey with the undergraduate community to identify topics of specific interest based on faculty experience in a STEM discipline. We are aiming for a workshop to include about 40 participants, so if you are interested in participating please sign up early during the registration process for the MCSR Conference in September.
