Research and Engagement Day (RED), a daylong symposium of academic excellence on April 15, will bring together hundreds of students and scores of faculty and staff presenting innovative research as well as creative and collaborative work.
Classes will be cancelled so the entire Bryant community can celebrate the breadth, depth, and passion of engaged learning across all disciplines at this signature event.
Keynote speakers have included Ken Bain, Ph.D., who wrote the international bestsellers What the Best College Teachers Do and What the Best College Students Do, award-winning journalist Hedrick Smith, and Jean Twenge, Ph.D., author of Generation Me and The Narcissism Epidemic.
“Research and Engagement Day is a vital component of the Bryant academic tradition,” says Provost and Chief Academic Officer Glenn Sulmasy, J.D., LL.M. “It is a celebration of the uniquely inclusive Bryant learning community and showcases the collaborative scholarship that is a hallmark of Bryant University.”
