Come see what your WSU Vancouver students are researching

There’s a 351-acre college campus sitting in your back yard. It provides education to more than 3,000 students, and more than 15,000 members of your metro community came from it. On a yearly basis, its students conduct dynamic research, often involving your community. Want to spend a day (or part of one) seeing what they’re up to?

More than 89 students from Washington State University’s Vancouver campus will showcase their research from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday in the Firstenburg Student Commons. The university will also recognize Stephen B. Kucer, and associate professor of language and literacy education who won the 2011 Chancellor’s Award for Research Excellence with his work on discourse comprehension and reading mistakes.

“We’re doing world class research,” said Bob Bates, a spokesman for WSU’s office of academic affairs. “You have a major research university in your own midst.”
