28th annual symposium: A celebration of faculty creativity and scholarship

Heidelberg celebrated the 28th annual Faculty Research Symposium on Tuesday with a total of 10 professors presenting recent and ongoing research. Two students also co-presented with their faculty members

The ultimate goal of the symposium is to give students a sense of what a professional scholarly presentation should look like and to demonstrate techniques they can apply to their own presentations. The symposium also serves as a forum for faculty members to share their research and scholarly interests with the campus community.

Dr. Daniel Kane served as the faculty coordinator for this year’s Faculty Research Symposium.

The following faculty members were presenters this year:

•    Dr. DoHee Kim-Appel (graduate counseling) – The Relationship of Psychological Factors in Predicting Level of Differentiation of Self

•    Dr. Aaron Sell (psychology & criminology) – An Empirical Test of the Evolutionary Origins of Hatred and Anger
