Oakland to Host Michigan Academy Conference
Oakland University will host the annual conference of the Michigan Academy of Science, Arts and Letters (MASAL).
MASAL Host Chair is Dean Graeme Harper, Dean of The Honors College..
"This is a unique opportunity for Oakland faculty and students to show the high quality of their research," said Dean Harper.
A Call for Papers has been issued for the conference to be held on 28 February 2014:
"One hundred and nineteen years old this spring, the Michigan Academy of Science, Arts, and Letters has a stated mission to "disseminate research and diffuse knowledge." The Michigan Academy of Science was founded by a small group of scientists from the public universities and private colleges of Michigan." (MASAL)
"We have major, world-class research going on here at OU," Dean Harper noted, "from that at undergraduate level right the way through to that at faculty level. Letting colleagues in Michigan know about this work is a strategic way to increase research dissemination and an understanding of the considerable significance of Oakland University's work - in our many fields of endeavor."
