THIBODAUX – Nicholls State University’s seventh annual Research Week is scheduled for Monday, March 26, through Friday, March 30. All events are open to the public and will highlight a variety of research, featuring a student poster competition, the Brown Bag Faculty Speaker Series and awards ceremonies honoring students and faculty.
Every Nicholls college will host topical presentations, with subjects as diverse as “Chromosome Numbers: A Natural History,” “The Nineteenth-Century World’s Fair,” “Culinary Sustainability Practices,” “Lost Restaurants of New Orleans,” “Use of Social Media,” “Research on Banks,” “Increasing Colorectal Cancer Screening” and “Colonel Chat” – the latter of which is a technological tutoring partnership between the Nicholls College of Education and area elementary school teachers.
