Steele Symposium 2019
The Steele Symposium is coordinated by the College of Education and Human Development and includes presentations by undergraduate and graduate students from the School of Education and the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences.
The Symposium is a great opportunity for students to showcase the research they are engaged in as part of their coursework, assistantship, or dissertation. Students may elect to present papers or posters, and advanced graduate students may choose to be a discussant.
In recognition of the symposium’s roots in home economics and family and consumer sciences, students from the Fashion and Apparel Studies department and in the majors of Applied Nutrition, Dietetics, Nutritional Sciences and Nutrition are invited to participate, and faculty of these departments are invited to attend.
In addition, guests and community members are enthusiastically welcome to attend and hear the student presentations.
