On Wednesday, February 9, Mount Saint Vincent University (the Mount) will host “Celebrating Research: From Academy to Community,” a research and scholarship open house showcasing research being conducted by Mount faculty and students.

The Mount is home to top academic programs in a variety of areas, with unique and exciting research happening within and across programs. Celebrating Research shifts focus from the classroom to the field. Members of the Mount community will be on-hand to share their work, and demonstrate the importance of research in an academic environment and how it translates to the wider community.

“Research is a vital part of the Mount’s dedication to the pursuit of knowledge and academic excellence,” says Ardra Cole, Associate Vice President, Academic and Research at the Mount. “We are proud of the very significant achievements of faculty and student researchers across all disciplines, and we encourage and support their work.”

The unique projects that will be on display during the Celebrating Research event will showcase the range of research interests and talent among the Mount community. Research in disciplines including Family Studies and Gerontology, The Centre on Aging, Child and Youth Study, Biology, Psychology and more will be on display throughout the course of the event.

In addition to displays, a Speakers’ Corner will begin at 11:30 a.m. and continue into the afternoon. Speakers include representatives from the Mount Library, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the Department of Applied Human Nutrition and the Department of Business and Tourism, as well as a representative from the Mount’s Industry Liaison Office.

Celebrating Research open house will take place in the Rosaria Student Centre Multipurpose Room from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, February 9.
