4th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium

Philosophy Department Winners

Spring 2014


The department of philosophy would like to congratulate two of our undergraduate philosophy majors who won awards at the 4th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium, sponsored by the Dean for Undergraduate Studies office and held on Friday, April 5th, 2014 in the Live Oak Pavilion.

These winners are:

Ms. Jessica Frank, 2nd Place
Oral Presentation: "The Paradox of the Masculine-Feminine Representation"
Faculty Mentor: Dr. Clevis R. Headley

Mr. Mitchell Robinson, 3rd Place
Oral Presentation: "The Power of Alison Jaggar's Critique of Liberalism"
Faculty Mentor: Dr. Marina P. Banchetti

We would also like to thank Mr. Alexander Bruno for serving as peer-mentor and co-organizing this year's event, in conjunction with the Office of Undergraduate Studies.



                                            Mitch Robinson, Alex Bruno, Jessica Frank, and Roger Rosena

Ms. Frank's and Mr. Robinson's achievements are significant, since they were competing with over 120 students from all of our colleges.  President Kelly and Interim Provost Perry attended the symposium and gave wonderful remarks to the audience, which consisted of over 150 faculty, staff, and students. 

Philosophy students have performed consistently well at the Annual Undergraduate Research Symposia.  Last year, two of our philosophy majors also won awards for their excellent oral presentations.  They were:

Mr. Eddie Mercer, 1st Place - Faculty Mentor: Dr. Clevis R. Headley

Mr. Alexander Bruno, 3rd Place - Faculty Mentor: Dr. Clevis R. Headley

The philosophy department is very proud of our students' achievements and we congratulate this year's winners.
