“This conference is an opportunity for our entire campus community to come together to celebrate the depth and breadth of research, scholarship, and creative work taking place on our campus,” says William Phillips, a professor in the Department of Psychology who organized the event along with Administrative Coordinator June Caminiti and Michael Pujals, Reference and Electronic Resources Librarian and Liaison to the Barowsky School of Business, and Nursing, Occupational Therapy, and Public Health Departments.

The goal of the Scholarly and Creative Works Conference aligns with Dominican’s mission to create and develop meaningful relationships with students and faculty and provide multiple formative learning experiences such as a major research project, an internship, a service learning program, or other forms of applied learning.
