University College Day is going to take place on April 9, 2014. The theme for this year’s UCD is  Sustainability or “Think Global, Start Local.”

College Day will begin at 8:30a.m.

As in year’s past, UCD will consist mainly of presentations by students with faculty advisors on topics on research, class projects and other activities demonstrating collaboration and critical thinking on campus. Presentations can take the form of posters, oral presentations, panel discussion and performances.

Students present for about 20 minutes; the poster session will be about 2 hours. Students may come and go during poster presentations.

People who submit proposals by Feb. 9, will receive notification by the UCD committee via email about the status of their proposals, including times of presentations.

The keynote speaker for UCD is Katharine Hayhoe, Ph.D., associate professor in the public administration program and director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University. She will present some science behind climate change and share her personal story as a scientist who is also an Evangelical Christian. The alumnus address will be given by Stefan Stamoulis, founder of hydrogeology/Environmental Testing Prospector Drilling and Tool Company.  Stamoulis  holds patents for technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from landfills.
