MMU Scholarship Fest provides outlet for student research, project presentations

Mount Mercy University prides itself on the experiential learning opportunities afforded to its students, both on and off campus. Often, these opportunities come in the form of faculty-led research or projects—culminating in the day-long annual Scholarship Festival.

To celebrate student work, Scholarship Festival will take place on Wednesday, May 2 from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. More than 60 students in majors from every academic department are presenting unique projects.

Research poster presentations will be held in the Sisters of Mercy University Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and student panels will be held 8:30 a.m.–4 p.m. Nursing poster presentations will take place 11 a.m.–1 p.m. in Donnelley Hall, Second Floor. A festival closing reception featuring student artwork will be held 4–6 p.m. in the Janalyn Hanson White Gallery.

  • “Disability is not a Defect” by mathematics student Joseph Kehinde
