Scholarship Day at Immaculata University
Research conducted by Immaculata University students will be on display during Scholarship Day on Thursday, April 9, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Villa Maria Hall, on the campus of Immaculata. The research display, called Posters Under the Dome, is free and open to the public. In celebration of Scholarship Day, Immaculata will recognize faculty members with 25+ years of service and also emerita faculty members. In the evening, a reception will be held for students who have received scholarships and the generous donors of these scholarships.
Approximately 60 Immaculata students, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, will have an opportunity to showcase their latest research during this annual event. Many faculty advisors will also be available to answer questions along with the students.
Some of the interesting research topics include: Tracking Satellites with Calculus; The Effects of Hand Exercises on the Legibility of Handwriting; The Effects of Portion Control on Religious Sisters Living in a Nursing Home; Immigration Issues in Schools; Balancing Act: Job Satisfaction and Stress Among Principals in Pennsylvania; Differences in Outcome of Concussions Based on Gender; Cyber School Education; and The Challenges of the Paradigm Shift on Multicultural Leadership to name a few of the topics.
Academic research at Immaculata University benefits students professionally, personally, and educationally. “Posters Under the Dome is a wonderful opportunity for students to showcase the research they’ve conducted and share their findings with a larger audience,” commented Christine Iannicelli, director of the Office of Sponsored Research. “Students can also learn from each other through networking with other student presenters.”
Academic departments represented in this year’s display include Nursing, Biology, Education, Psychology, Exercise Science, Fashion Merchandising, and Nutrition.
Immaculata University is a Catholic, comprehensive, coeducational institution of higher education, located on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
