SOURCE Showcases CWU Scholarship and Creative Expression

The Symposium On University Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE) celebrates its 19th year dedicated to student scholarship at Central Washington University. On the Ellensburg campus, SOURCE will be held from 8:10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on May 15 in the Student Union Recreation Center. The event is free and open to the public.

The symposium provides students, faculty and staff from all departments and units with a platform to present their individual or collaborative scholarly work, while providing a forum for sharing and celebrating that scholarship with the university and broader community.

“SOURCE just gets better every year,” said organizer Kara Gabriel, CWU professor, psychology. “The students keep raising the bar on the quality of their presentations.”

SOURCE 2014 celebrates 361 presentations with 604 listed authors and co-authors. All presentations are mentored by faculty or staff at CWU. This year, mentors are also from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Yakima Valley Community College, and Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences as well as Ellensburg High School, Selah Junior High School, Walter Strom Middle School, Chief Joseph Middle School in Richland, and Chief Kanim Middle School in Fall City."

This year’s symposium features many distinct types of presentations, including 138 oral presentations, 3 panel presentations, 22 creative expression performances or presentations, 143 poster presentations with 9 more at satellite campuses, 27 constructed objects, and 13 creative works, including a fashion show with eight designs. Information about the presentations may be found in the SOURCE handbook, online at https://www.cwu.edu/source/sites/cts.cwu.edu.source/files/documents/2014...
