Students Present at National Undergraduate Research Conference

Seven MGA students presented their work at the National Undergraduate Research Conference, which was held at Kennesaw State University April 11-13. Their proposals were selected from over 4,000 submissions because they demonstrated unique contributions to their fields of study.

Dr. Clay Morton, Director of the Honors Program and Professor of English, was faculty mentor for the work of several students and accompanied them to the conference.

Funding for these students’ conference presentations was provided by the Honors Program, the Office of Experiential Learning, and a STEM grant. Through the Honors and Experiential Learning programs, MGA students have the opportunity to participate in high-caliber research endeavors, often publishing their work in peer-reviewed journals and presenting at state, regional, and national conferences.
