What is Intersections?
Intersections: SOURCE Symposium and Poster Session is where CWRU undergraduates present their research and creative projects. Intersections is an opportunity for the University community and others to see the broad and diverse work that is being done across campus by our outstanding undergraduates.
Intersections is held three times a year: in December (Fall), April (Spring) and August (Summer). It is a fun and informative celebration featuring bright, creative students and supportive faculty mentors.
To celebrate and encourage students whose research is focused on children or adolescents, the Schubert Center sponsors a competition for recognition. Prizes are awarded for the top projects! The students' research covers a wide range of topics and disciplines, from engineering medical devices to analyzing social structures and policies.
