Students present findings at UHV undergraduate research conference

UHV students Makayla Hargrove, left, Alexander Innes, Monica Oliver and Kelsey Stevens listen Friday to a question from Justin Bell, a UHV assistant professor of philosophy. The question was posed during the UHV School of Arts & Sciences Undergraduate Research Conference. The students were on a panel for the “Crossing Communication and Culture: Ethnographies of Organizational Rituals and Storytelling” presentation. Twenty-one UHV students joined students from Lamar University, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and Texas Southern University in presenting during five sessions. The theme for the conference was “Crossing Disciplines.”
