TAMIU Student Research Focus

of Academic Conference March 27-28

If you’re curious about the kinds of academic research students embark on at Texas A&M International University, you’re invited to attend a series of presentations taking place at the Sixth Lamar Bruni Vergara & Guillermo Benavides Z. Academic Conference March 27-28.

The Conference, free and open to the public, will be from 1 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 27 and from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Friday, March 28 at the Senator Judith Zaffirni Success Center, room 101. TAMIU’s premier annual academic Conference, the event provides all graduate and undergraduate students with an opportunity to present academic research, art and performances to the community.

“We invite anyone in the community who is interested in the excellent research and scholarship of TAMIU students to come and enrich their knowledge at this Conference,” said Zoila Franco-Hinojosa, research administrator for the Office of Graduate Studies and Research. “This is an opportunity to see the level of research that we do on campus, to meet future leaders and know what they can offer,” she added.

The Conference, graciously supported by the Lamar Bruni Vergara Trust and Guillermo Benavides Z., provides an opportunity for recognition of the excellent research and scholarship of TAMIU students, with cash prizes for best presentations in their disciplines, Franco- Hinojosa noted.

Winners are announced at an award ceremony and buffet dinner on Friday, which concludes the Conference. Parents of students are especially encouraged to attend the award ceremony.
