Student research and artistic talent will be on display April 24 during Saint Vincent College’s 16th Annual Academic Conference.

Open to the public, the conference is scheduled for 2:30 to 7 p.m. in the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion on the college campus in Unity. Admission is free.

The multidisciplinary exposition will showcase the work of nearly 250 Saint Vincent students in various formats — including posters, presentations, panel sessions and performances. Topics range from anthropology to biochemistry, graphic design, music, politics and theology.

Brother Mark Floreanini, associate professor of fine arts, has arranged student demonstrations in illustration, printmaking, stained glass and wheel-thrown pottery.

Projects will be displayed by participants in the college’s Bearcat B.E.S.T. (Building Education through Skills Training) program, for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are transitioning from high school.

Visitors also may learn about two initiatives at the Fred Rogers Center at Saint Vincent — Simple Interactions, an approach to early education that builds on day-to-day interactions among children and adults, and Incubator 143, an undergraduate research and development group focused on creating positive change for children’s development.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
