The graduating class of Knowledge Integration students will be presenting "flash talks" about their senior research projects, followed by the opportunity for individual discussions.  Forming the capstone of their four-year undergraduate career, these projects represent an exciting synthesis of the diverse disciplines the students have explored through this one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary program.

Knowledge Integration Assistant Professor John McLevey received the Early Researcher Award (ERA), a program that helps promising and recently appointed researchers to build their research team of undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The award consists of $150,000 over five years.

Congratulations to Hannah James, first year KI student, on being awarded the Dean of Environment’s Scholarship for Excellence.
