2021 Catalyst Research Symposium

Hear research presentations from faculty and staff who were awarded Catalyst Grants for 2020-2021 during this 2021 Catalyst Research Symposium. Friday Institute Executive Director Hiller A. Spires, Ph.D., will facilitate the event. The purpose of the Catalyst Grant program is to increase research collaborations between faculty and staff at the Friday Institute and the NC State College of Education. A primary objective of this program is to “seed” collaborative research that will lead to further research and support from external granting agencies.
