Chapman University’s Student Research Day (CUSRD) is a semiannual event celebrating the scope and depth of scholarly research and creative activity conducted by Chapman undergraduate and graduate students. This semester’s research fair, held in Sandhu Conference Center on Wednesday, December 6th, featured a wide range of research subjects, from art and music to biological science and software engineering.

This year’s keynote speaker was Carolyn Forché, the award-winning poet of Witness, human rights advocate, Chapman University Presidential Fellow, and Director of Center for Poetics and Social Practice at Georgetown University.

Darliene’s research explored the role of school librarians and how they can utilize their expertise to expose students to activities that help them develop into global, multicultural and technologically competent citizens.

The Leatherby Libraries was proud to host a table at the event, informing students about library services and encouraging the use of these services for their research endeavors.
