LOGAN – Because discovery is a core part of the land grant mission of Utah State University, the school’s Office of Research and the University Libraries will join to host events during Research Week, April 8-12.

It is a week to celebrate the work of USU faculty, graduate students and undergraduates and to represent research happening campus-wide.

All events will be held in the Merrill-Cazier Library beginning with the D. Wynne Thorne Lecture Monday, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the New Books Lounge. Dr. David Tarboton, director of the Water Research Laboratory, will discuss his three decades of research focused on the intersection between hydrology and information systems.

Student Research Symposium Tuesday and Wednesday, April 9-10 features hundreds of presentations from top student researchers from every college and department at USU. It is open both days, 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at various library locations.

The library will host a panel discussion Thursday, April 11, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., titled “Land Grant/R1: Community over Commercialization” which explores the challenges of maintaining R1 status.

The Student Research Celebration, also Thursday from 3-5 p.m., offers a valuable network training experience for students who attend.
