Galloway, N.J. - Faculty, staff and students at Stockton University will present research on Friday, March 31 at the 17th Day of Scholarship, with dozens of topics ranging from “Ideal and Actual Human Mating Strategies,” to “Egg Harbor City at Play: An Oral History Project,” to “Being Green: How Do Consumers Purchase, Use, and Dispose of Products?”

These are a few of the scholarly projects from Stockton’s seven academic schools that will be explored in the Campus Center and Lower F-Wing on the Galloway, N.J. campus from 8:30 a.m. - 12:15 and from 1:15 - 4:30 p.m. Posters outlining the work will also be on display in the Board of Trustees Room in the Campus Center all day.

Criminal Justice Professor Marissa Levy will give the keynote address, “Maintaining Balance while Forging Divergent Paths to Scholarly Success,” at 9 a.m. Her talk will focus on how her research has enabled her to make community connections and assist in efforts that bring about real change.

“That is the aspect of my research that makes me the most fulfilled,” said Levy, who has worked with community groups and law enforcement on crime prevention projects in Atlantic City, Pleasantville, Newark, and Lexington, Ky. thus far in her career.

The afternoon will include a “Pecha Kucha” session from 1:15-2:15 p.m. in the Campus Center Event Room. Professors will present 20 slides for 20 seconds each, totaling six minutes and 40

seconds. The very fast-paced format, named for the Japanese word for “chit-chat,” was developed in Tokyo in 2003. Topics include:  atmospheric research being done at Stockton, teaching public budgeting in the age of austerity using simulations, sediment accumulation in a small salt marsh, and a talk about the exhibit, “A Time for Change: Civil Rights in South Jersey.”
