The inaugural CSSC Student and Faculty Research Showcase was a major success. Over the course of the day, it featured over 60 presentations and posters, involving more than 100 individuals who participated either as a presenter, a co-author, or a judge (you can still check out our program at https://ualr.edu/cssc/files/2017/03/2017-CSSC-Showcase-Program.pdf). The day culminated with an awards ceremony in which they honored all faculty and student participants and revealed the winners of several awards. Please join us in congratulating all participants and the following students and faculty who won an award last night, especially our own Akaya Kitchen.
Dr. Neveen Shafeek Amin is this year’s recipient of our Faculty Mentor Award. As the student who nominated Neveen wrote, “Dr. Amin is amazingly compassionate, motivating, and knowledgeable […] her dedication towards being a life coach to me as a well as a true faculty mentor is why she is more than deserving of being honored with the Faculty Mentor Award at the showcase.” Once again, we extend warm congratulations to Neveen!
