Olson among UMD students who present their research projects for UROP Research Showcase

DULUTH, MN – More than sixty undergraduate students at University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) presented a poster for the spring 2018 Undergraduate Research and Artistic Showcase on Friday, April 13. The event was sponsored by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).

Cheyenne Olson, a junior majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Colfax was involved in this year’s UROP Research and Artistic Showcase.

“Olson presented a poster display entitled, ‘A National Survey to Guide an Instructional Program to Enhance Communication for Individuals with Alzheimer’s Dementia,’” said Marc Seigar, Associate Dean in the Swenson College of Science and Engineering. “The UROP Showcase is an invaluable opportunity for students to conduct research and to practice presenting their work to an outside audience.”

UROP provides financial support for research, scholarly, or creative projects that are completed with a faculty member. The showcase is an opportunity for these students to present their achievements to the public. Each poster presentation highlights the student’s involvement in the program.
