The Erickson Conference will be held virtually on Friday, May 7, 2021. The Erickson Committee looks forward to hearing about the work our students have done, even in these challenging times. We also are excited to welcome (virtually) our keynote speaker, Dr. Ryan Bebej, Associate Profession of Biology at Calvin University, and an expert on marine mammal evolution.
This is the nineteenth year that the Erickson conference has been held at Seattle Pacific University.* Although the current pandemic necessitates that our conference be held online this year, it will continue to showcase the outstanding research and design contributions our students are making in the fields of Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics and Sociology. Our students' presentations range from single quarter classroom-based original research projects to summative multi-year independent research programs and engineering design projects. Please join us in this celebration of students' projects and support your friends as they present the findings of their individual projects.
We would like to thank Dr. Joyce Erickson, past Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, for the legacy she has left our students by establishing this conference. We would also like to thank all the students who have participated in this conference over the years to make it so succesful. Thank you!
Our new conference logo and artwork were designed by Julie Renne and Emma Sebastian, both senior Visual Communications majors, under the guidance of Karen Gutowski-Zimmerman, Professor of Art-Visual Communications. We are very grateful for their time and talent!
*The conference was cancelled in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic.
Schedule is forthcoming.
