Join Us for the Scholarship Symposium

Please join us for the Second Annual 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 from 4 to 7:30 p.m. from Monday, April 2 through Thursday, April 5, and includes numerous research, performance and poster presentations. 

After a welcome from President Patrick Leahy, Professor Thomas Baldino will kick off the event with a lecture titled “Unlocking the Keystone State:  Using elite interviews to uncover the differences between the theory and practice of Pennsylvania’s government in the 21st Century.”

Helen Davis, associate professor of English, closes the symposium with the O'Hop Final Word Lecture. Her presentation is titled “Ambitious Women Then and Now: Charlotte Brontë to Hillary Clinton.” 

President 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.
