New in Showcase: DSocSci student research

The Library is pleased to host, in collaboration with the Office of Research, poster presentations in Showcase highlighting the emerging research projects of current 2nd year Doctor of Social Sciences students. Showcase is the Library’s space for promoting Royal Roads' innovative, applicable and real-world research. The poster session on Wednesday, August 22 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. is open to the Royal Roads University community and is part of the current Doctoral Residency happening on campus right now.

This year, the poster session takes the place of the previous years’ individual doctoral students’ Roads to Research presentations. The poster session will provide the DSocSci students with more time and space to network and engage in meaningful dialogue about their emerging research ideas. Please come out to Showcase to meet, dialogue with and support our RRU Doctoral students during the lunch hour on August 22.
