Join Us for the Inaugural Wilkes University Scholarship Symposium

Please join us for the inaugural Wilkes University Scholarship Symposium, which celebrates the outstanding faculty research and scholarship taking place throughout Wilkes University’s spectrum of disciplines. The event takes place March 28 - 30 from 4 to 7:30 p.m. each day, and includes numerous research, performance and poster presentations. 

After a welcome from President Patrick Leahy, biology professor Michael Steele will kick off the event with a lecture titled “Research and Scholarship at Wilkes: Then, Now and Tomorrow.” Abas Sabouni, assistant professor of electrical engineering, closes the symposium with the O'Hop Final Word Lecture. His presentation is titled “Future Technology for Breast Cancer Imaging, Detection and Monitoring Treatment.” 

Dr. Leahy committed $1 million to create the Research and Scholarship Fund in 2016. The fund provides financial support to faculty for their work as scholars and creative practitioners. Faculty, students and Research and Scholarship Grant recipients will share their work at what will be an annual symposium.
