North Bay, ON – Nipissing University’s second annual Research Month kicked off today during a launch event held at North Bay City Hall. Throughout the month of March, Nipissing will be hosting a series of events for the North Bay community, designed to highlight the important research taking place at the University.

“Research Month is an exciting time at the University, as it provides an opportunity for us to showcase the incredible diversity of research taking place here that is impacting our communities locally, nationally and internationally,” said Dr. Arja Vainio-Mattila, Provost and Vice-President, Academic and Research at Nipissing University. “Not only will we be celebrating and sharing the research contributions of our faculty members and graduate students, but also the work of our many talented undergraduate student researchers.”

The first major event of the month, NU360, takes place on Tuesday, March 10 at 6 p.m. at the Grande Event Centre downtown North Bay. NU360 will challenge Nipissing’s President, and seven other researchers, to present their research in six minutes using just six slides. This year, a panel of local high school students will be judging the presentations.

On March 20-21, the 13th Annual Undergraduate Research Conference will be held on campus, providing an opportunity for undergraduate students at Nipissing and across Ontario to engage in scholarly debate and showcase their work before their peers, faculty, and the public. As part of this event, there will be a community keynote address by former host of CBC’s Ideas and Nipissing honorary degree recipient, Dr. Paul Kennedy on March 20 at 6 p.m. in the Nipissing Theatre.

Also on March 20, Nipissing will be hosting a talk by Dr. Lorrilee McGregor, assistant professor at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine and Chair of the Manitoulin Anishinaabek Research Review Committee. Dr. Lorrilee will be presenting a talk entitled, “The Manitoulin Anishinaabek Research Review Committee – First Nations Response to Research” starting at 11:30 a.m in Nipissing’s new Teaching Hub.

Research Month will wrap up with the annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition on March 24 at 6 p.m. in the Nipissing Theatre. 3MT® is a university-wide competition for Masters and Doctoral students in which participants present their research and its wider impact in three minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges from the North Bay community. The winner from this event will move on to the next stage of this national competition.

All events throughout the month are free and open to the public. Come discover the ways Nipissing University’s research inspires innovation, improves lives, and makes the world a better place.
