From Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - A total of 265 students shared their academic research with speeches and presentations during Academic Celebration Week at Lindsey Wilson College from November 28 - December 2, 2016. Service-learning, project-based learning and creative research were just a few of the methods used by students to present findings and ideas to their peers along with faculty and staff.
Bettie Starr, Vice President for Academic Affairs, says that the week is important because it helps to highlight the work being done by undergraduate students that might otherwise go unnoticed.
"Too often, only one or two faculty know about student accomplishments," said Starr. "The participants have shown that they can communicate professionally, think critically and apply their classroom knowledge to new projects - all college essential learning outcomes."
Starr is also encouraged by the growth of Academic Celebration Week over the past few years.
"We have moved from having just a handful of students participating in an Academic Celebration Day each semester a few years ago to hundreds participating in Academic Celebration Week," said Starr.
Faith Marcum, a nursing student from Russell Springs, Ky., was one of the many student presenting during the week. Marcum felt that her research on Home Health Care was beneficial on many levels.
"My topic was Home Heath Care and more specifically the aspects that effect patient outcomes," said Marcum. "It was important for me to take part in this week's celebration to educate my fellow nursing students and audience on the importance of my health related topic."
Marcum expressed satisfaction due to the reception of her research because a lot of time and effort had went into the work.
"My classmates and I spent months conducting this literature review to present based on research we found," said Marcum. "So it was really nice to get the feedback we did from the audience."
Above all Bettie Starr says that the week is about LWC students learning from one another in order to be positive contributors to their communities.
"Having a showcase for student academic work encourages other students to become actively involved in their academic work," said Starr. "Lindsey Wilson graduates are going to be difference-makers."
