For over 20 years, Salem State University has held an annual research day to showcase and celebrate the scholarship and creative activities of undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty. The day begins with the Undergraduate Symposium, featuring empirical, scholarly, and creative work by undergraduate students in all schools and departments. Students present their work as posters, papers, performances, or displays of artwork. The Faculty and Graduate Symposium follows in the afternoon, during which faculty and graduate students from across the university present their current research through panels and poster sessions. The day winds up with the gala Faculty Publication Celebration, which recognizes all faculty who had their work published or exhibited in the previous calendar year.

  • Season Of The Witch: Northeast Writing Center Stories

    DeCiccio, Al (2022-05-05)
    “Season of the Witch: Northeast Writing Center Stories,” to paraphrase Wendy Bishop, underscores how you can take the person out of the writing center, but you can’t take the writing center out of the person. Engaged in this community of practice helped me to succeed as an academic administrator, showing me that our community’s emphasis on collaboration and conversation effects change. I describe several academic programs I helped to develop using these essential writing center characteristics. The bulk of “Season of the Witch: Northeast Writing Center Stories” offers recollections about Northeast writing centers, particularly those at Merrimack College, Salem State University, and the University of New Hampshire. I explain that there are lessons in the histories of these writing centers. I propose that these lessons could provide future progressive writing center actions that address new outcomes about administration, institutional partnerships, confidentiality, race, identity, and disability.

  • Paying Attention To Mindfulness

    Zolt, Brittany; Smith, Johanna (2022-05-05)
    Students often struggle with paying attention in class, especially those with ADHD or who exhibit behaviors that align with ADHD symptoms.  Through small group counseling sessions, counselors will look at the impact mindfulness techniques have on students who struggle with attention in the classroom.  I will work with these students by teaching them techniques they can use when they feel they are losing their focus and begin to exhibit disruptive behaviors. The goal of this study is to give students the tools they need to be successful by using mindfulness techniques to help them regain control of their minds and bodies.
