22nd Annual Erickson Conference, May 3, 2024

The Erickson Conference will be held on Friday, May 3, 2024 in Otto Miller Hall. The Erickson Committee looks forward to hearing about the work our students have done, even in these challenging times. We also are excited to welcome our keynote speaker, Dr. Elizabeth Nguyen, an SPU alumna and pediatric nephrologist at Seattle Children's.

For 22 years, the Erickson conference has showcased the outstanding research and design contributions our students are making in the fields of Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Health and Human Performance, Mathematics, Physics and Sociology. Our students' presentations range from single quarter classroom-based original research projects to summative multi-year independent research programs and engineering design projects. Please join us in this celebration of students' projects and support your friends as they present the findings of their individual projects.

We would like to thank Dr. Joyce Erickson, past Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, for the legacy she has left our students by establishing this conference. We would also like to thank all the students who have participated in this conference over the years to make it so succesful. Thank you!

Our conference logo and artwork were designed by Julie Renne and Emma Sebastian, both alumni of the Visual Communications program, under the guidance of Karen Gutowsky-Zimmerman, Professor of Art-Visual Communications. We are very grateful for their time and talent!

Thank you,

The Erickson Organizing Committee
