Seventh Annual Bankier Library Research Award

Several students were recognized for their research at the Bankier Library on Wednesday, April 16 at the Seventh Annual Bankier Library Research Award Ceremony.

The Research Award Contest was created to reward students who take the time to develop a thoughtful, methodical and scholarly approach to the research needed for their papers and projects, and to encourage students to develop good research techniques.

Students who completed a research project for a Brookdale course during the Spring, Summer, and Fall 2013 semesters were eligible to submit his/her work to the contest. In addition to presenting a research paper, students had to complete a process essay which further explained their research methodology and rationale. Students also required endorsement from their instructors.

Congratulations to the winners!
