Students present research findings at Dixie Forum

ST. GEORGE – Dixie State University’s weekly “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World” forum series continues on Tuesday, featuring a number of student research presentations on a variety of topics. The forum will begin at noon, in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the DSU campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Tuesday’s forum is being held in conjunction with Dixie State’s Fourth-Annual Student Research Day event, which will be held on April 7, at the Gardner Student Center. DSU’s Student Research Day was established in 2011 to celebrate and showcase student research. Each year, all Dixie State students are encouraged to submit research topics and present their scholarly and creative work.

The Dixie Forum is a lecture series designed to introduce DSU students, faculty, and the St. George community to diverse ideas and personalities and to widen their world views. Forum lectures are free and open to the general public for participation. Dixie students can earn one college credit by signing up for HUM 1000, attending lectures regularly, carefully considering the ideas expressed, and writing about the presentations.

The weekly Dixie Forum series will continue its 2014 Spring Semester slate on April 8 featuring a presentation on the planet Mars by Dr. David Bish, Professor of Mineralogy at Indiana University-Bloomington.
