“The public is welcome to attend to see the type of important research being done at the university,” Dr. Shawn Holliday, associate dean of graduate studies, professor of English and director of the Master of Arts in American Studies Program, said. “Any student thinking of attending graduate school should participate since research is such an integral part of graduate study.”
Holliday, who also serves as the Ranger Research Day’s director, said that it is important for Northwestern to have a large number of participants at this local event this year because these participants can go on and present at Oklahoma Research Day in 2020, which Southwestern Oklahoma State University will play host to in Weatherford on March 6.
“Since presenters from all of Oklahoma’s colleges and universities attend this event, I hope to have Northwestern well-represented to show our Ranger pride,” Holliday said.
