Eight Beloit College scholars will present the results of their summer research Thursday, in an annual summer symposium starting at 8:30 a.m. All presentations will take place in the Hendricks Center for the Arts (located at the corner of Pleasant Street and Grand Avenue in downtown Beloit) Film Classroom, room 132.
The Sanger Summer Research Fellows program is an eight-week summer program open to returning students in all disciplines. Students work collaboratively with a faculty mentor on an original research project in their interest area and participate in weekly seminars. At the conclusion of the program, the research fellows present their project in a formal paper at the summer symposium.
“The thing I love most about the Sanger Symposium is that it offers a window into the best of Beloit College,” says Director of the Liberal Arts in Practice Center and Associate Professor of Sociology Charles Westerberg. “The Sanger Summer Scholars Program has been a model for the liberal arts in practice, and provides evidence for how the process of advancing faculty research can work simultaneously with mentoring students in the habits and skills that make them successful in the long term. When you see this play out through faculty/student presentations, it makes you proud of what we are doing at Beloit.”
