Student Research Presentations Highlighted Monday
Dr. Jen Borgo did an amazing job of bring the Student Research Symposium to life Monday afternoon on the first day of Coker College Inauguration Week. The presentations ran on time and the students I saw appeared ready, if a little nervous, for this academic endeavor. The subjects were impressive and the scope of the research broad. Dr. Wyatt, who is being inaugurated on Friday of this week, spent the afternoon listening and rating the projects. Dr. Lincoln, Coker provost, was also listening closely to the many presentations. At Coker, we talk about being a student-centered community of learning. You don't have to listen to the words, you can judge by the actions. This is one great, concrete example of what we mean by being a student-centered learning community.
