Welcome to the 2010 Walden University Summer Research Symposium. For our 40th Anniversary, this session’s symposium highlights diverse research from our faculty, students, and graduates. The studies that are represented include work from student capstone projects as well as faculty research in development and research supported by grants or internal fellowships. We are proud that this year’s event includes a faculty research panel, outstanding dissertation and doctoral study awards presentations, poster presentations, and roundtable discussions. Within the roundtable format, a select group of researchers will be available for interactive discussions of their work, with handouts and visual materials available to support the discussion. Timely topics in this year’s symposium include epidemiology, bullying, management, leadership development, and mental health. Methodologies include qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches appropriate for both practitioner research as well as large-scale theoretical studies. We hope that the information presented in this variety of formats will inspire new ideas and opportunities for further research collaboration within the Walden community. You can use the area at the back of this program to record key contacts made at this event.
