Research Symposium on Friday, March 24

The Spring Research Symposium will be held next Friday, March 24, in the Downtown Center, and we are looking for faculty members to help moderate the concurrent sessions. There will be 15 sessions of three presentations each, and we need volunteers to keep the presenters on track, help tie the presentations together and lead the questions.

The theme of this year’s Research Symposium is “Conversations in the Global Community.”

The symposium will open at 12:30 p.m. with a round table discussion featuring professors from each of the colleges at Brenau. They will discuss the issue of “Free Speech Versus Safe Space” from their unique viewpoints, drawing on their experiences and research.

The round table participants will be:

• Dr. Irma Alvarado, professor in the School of Occupational Therapy, College of Health Sciences
• Kenneth K. Frank, J.D., professor and director of conflict resolution and legal studies, College of Fine Arts and Humanities
• Dr. Janet Grier, assistant professor of education, College of Education Fairburn campus
• Dr. James Sennett, professor of business ethics and coordinator of business programs for the Fairburn campus, College of Business and Mass Communications

Following the round table, there will be three presentation sections starting at 1:30 and wrapping up at 4:30.
