Student Engagement Forum showcases Radford's finest students (Video)


The annual Student Engagement Forum showcases the highest levels of academic achievement and creation of new knowledge at Radford University.

Creative works, scholarship and research by undergraduate and graduate students from across campus are in the spotlight during the three-day celebration of learning.

A variety of topics were explored in the 2014 Forum such as congestive heart failure readmission rates, the interplay between world history and cultural property and the readability of various fonts on the Internet.

Students who enter work in the Forum have the option of presenting in three different formats: oral presentations, poster presentations or artistic exhibits and performances.

"The work on display represents a tremendous undertaking, often involving teams of students and faculty, to address important questions and issues for society, such as climate change, disease spread, acceptance of minority groups, the causes of bullying, maximizing stock market investments, the role of athletics within university missions and so many more," said Joseph Wirgau, director of the Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship.

This year marked the 23rd year of the Forum on the RU campus. From humble beginnings it has grown into one of Radford's most anticipated events, drawing hundreds of submissions annually.
