-         If you are the advisor to a student’s project, you will receive an email requesting your approval of her abstract once she submits her work.  You will need to do this through Lotus Notes.

-        Please ensure that you have space in your email to receive notification that your student has submitted an abstract. The deadline for faculty advisors' approval of student abstracts isMarch 3, 2015

Please announce Research Day 2015 to all of your students.

Research Day 2015 is an opportunity for students to showcase their academic achievements. For many, it is one of the first steps they take while at Spelman College to demonstrate inquiry-based scholarly excellence.  We encourage each student to participate in Research Day 2015, and consider this as a true Gateway to Excellence within her chosen field.
