SALISBURY, MD---Some 25 Salisbury University students recently attended the 2014 National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY.
“Their presentations and poster sessions covered a wide array of information representative of all our academic schools,” said Dr. Clifton Griffin, dean of graduate studies and research. “NCUR is highly competitive and having 25 SU representatives speaks to caliber of undergraduate research being conducted at Salisbury University.”
Topics ranged from the human geography of Assateague Island and the relationship between America’s Democratic and Green parties, to studies of Atlantic killifish, relationship aggression, Queen Mary I, Zimbabwe aid, masculinized women in romantic literature, the loss of gay culture, and more.
Student presenters from Salisbury included: Alysha Allen and Asha Azariah-Kribbs, both senior English majors; Amanda Tees-Bulgarelli, a senior history major; and Cassandra Newcomb, a senior anthropology and archeology major.
Other local student presenters included Hillary Daye, a junior history major from Berlin; Edwin Miranda, a senior kinesiology and exercise science major from Pittsville; and Joseph Watso, a junior kinesiology and exercise science major from Willards.
SU is the only Maryland campus that has hosted NCUR. All of these student participants earned $700 travel grants from SU to assist with costs.
