Four Global Honors students–Kellsey Bledsoe (Environmental Studies), Bronwyn Clarke (PP&E), Kate Drohman (Accounting) and Mason Pellegrini (Writing Studies), were accepted to present their 2015-16 Bamford Fellowship in Global Engagement (BFGE) research at the 2016 Western Regional Honors Council (WRHC) Conference, which was held in Riverside, CA this weekend.
Bronwyn and Kate presented their project, How to do Global Research: You don’t have to go to Haiti, in the conference’s ‘Innovative Education’ session (photo 1). This drew upon their recent experience conducting primary research in Los Angeles public schools. Kellsey and Mason presented their project, Environmental Activism Strategies and the Palm Oil Crisis, in the conference’s student poster session (photo 2). For their stellar efforts, they were awarded third prize in the highly competitive Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine Arts category.
Please join me in congratulating Kellsey, Bronwyn, Kate and Mason for representing UW Tacoma in such a prestigious setting, and for earning high recognition from our regional honors peers. They will also be presenting their research at the 2016 Global Honors Colloquium in William Philip Hall on Thursday, May 12 and Friday, May 13 – don’t miss out on the opportunity to catch them and other top-notch presenters in action!

Sciences and Mathematics held the Fall 2015 edition of the UW Tacoma Environmental Research Symposium (UWaTERS) on Thursday December 10th 10:30-12:00 PM in the hallway of the 2nd floor Science Building.
Environmental Science and Environmental Studies majors presented their capstone research projects in a poster session. These students also participated (as part of their TESC 410 class) in creating UW Tacoma’s inaugural submissions for the national EPA green infrastructure design competition, campus RainWorks Challenge. The student teams benefited from the involvement of City of Tacoma and UW Tacoma Facilities Services staff during brainstorming and design. The student teams will be showing off their design boards for this project at the poster event.
