Honors Transfer Program

BHC Symposium

The Bay Honors Consortium 9th Annual Community College Honors

Research Symposium will be on Saturday May 7th, 2016

What is the Symposium?

The symposium is an all-day event that brings together outstanding community college honors students from all over California to present their research. Anyone who is in the LPC Honors Transfer Program may submit a proposal.

How do I participate?

If you are interested in submitting one or more proposals, you need to do two things:

  • Talk to your faculty mentor (probably the instructor who helped you with your honors project) to see if he or she is willing to mentor you for this project.
  • See Dr. Klaschus in 2174. She can help guide you in writing your abstract.
    NOTE: Proposals do NOT have to have been honors contracts or projects; they may be any research you have done or are working on. Dr. Klaschus can act as your mentor if you do not have one. You will not be allowed to submit a proposal without listing a faculty mentor.

Also, anyone who is in the LPC Honors Program may attend, even if you are not presenting. It’s a great way to find out what kind of research is expected at this level.

Las Positas Symposium: Friday, May 13, 2016

In addition to the statewide symposium at Berkeley, we will have one here at LPC as well. Any honors student who has completed a contract, or a project in an honors course, in Fall 2015 or Spring 2016, or any students invited to present at the Berkeley symposium, may apply to present at this event. It will be held on Friday, May 13th, in the afternoon, in the Lecture Hall, 2420. I will be sending out a notice about midway through the spring term to remind you all of this opportunity. It will be free and open to the public, so it’s a chance for your family and friends to hear you present your research.
