Thanks to everyone involved in this project which highlights our student achievement in such a professional manner. “

More than 30 students will present the results of research conducted in courses or through independent study projects in departments within the College of Liberal Arts. Topics include U.S. environmental policy, community issues in Conway, feminism, and religion.
