William Jewell College will showcase student research initiatives and creative activities during the seventh annual David Nelson Duke Undergraduate Colloquium on the Liberty, Mo., campus April 19. Regular classes will be suspended for the day in order to involve all students in the celebration. The public is invited to attend any of the day’s free events; reservations or tickets are not required.

Celebrating the Life of the Mind: A Day of Undergraduate Scholarship and Creativity involves students presenting their scholarly works to faculty, staff and the community at large through oral presentations, performing and visual arts, public speaking and readings of creative writing. The colloquium will allow students from all academic disciplines to receive recognition for their unique ideas and studies.

“The colloquium concept reflects Jewell’s commitment to increasing involvement of undergraduates in research,” said Dr. John Westlie, Dean of the College and Vice President for Academic Affairs. “The event embodies William Jewell’s educational mission and reflects its high expectations and commitment to academic excellence from students and faculty.”

Celebrating the Life of the Mind begins at 10 a.m. with the first research presentations, and presentation sessions continue throughout the day. A total of 39 students will participate in the formal research presentations, which are broken down into 15-minute segments during the morning and afternoon sessions.
Presentation topics are reflective of the full breadth and depth of the liberal arts and sciences. Topics scheduled to be addressed during this year’s colloquium include:

• Marriage for All the Right Reasons: Jane Austen’s New Model of Marriage
