Western Carolina University will host its third annual Discovery Forum, an event designed to encourage young people to share innovative ideas for making their communities better places to live, on Tuesday, March 24.
A selection committee composed of university faculty and staff has issued a call for proposals from WCU undergraduate students interested in participating in the Discovery Forum. Deadline for submission of proposals is 5 p.m. Friday, March 6.
The forum, open to the public, will be held from 5 until 7 p.m. in the conference center of Blue Ridge Hall on the WCU campus.
Originally planned for October 2014, the third Discovery Forum has been rescheduled to coincide with another major campus event that focuses on student research, the annual Undergraduate Expo, said Brian Railsback, dean of the Honors College and chair of the forum selection committee. The Undergraduate Expo is set for March 23 and 24.
