The students were sponsored at the conference by Muskingum faculty members Assistant Professor of Spanish Dr. Marla Williams, Associate Professor of English Dr. Richard Williamson and Associate Professor of French Dr. Jean Morris.
The Butler Undergraduate Research Conference began in 1988 as an outlet for undergraduate students to share their research and creative endeavor experiences with interested students and faculty. In a typical year, the Butler URC brings together approximately 600 students from more than 30 midwest colleges and universities.
At the conference, students present summaries of their work, in sessions organized by topic. The presentations by the Muskingum students were the result of their work on their senior seminars, which are the capstones of their studies in their academic majors.
