Dear Colleagues and Students,

It is with great enthusiasm and pride that I welcome students, faculty, and staff from California State University, San Bernardino to the Office of Student Research’s (OSR) 9th annual, “Meeting of the Minds” Student Research Symposium. Each year, “Meeting of the Minds” is our opportunity to showcase the outstanding research and creative projects of our students and their faculty mentors. Due to the exceptional circumstances of this year, I am particularly proud of our students and faculty mentors who have had to rapidly adapt to a constantly changing academic environment and world in order to continue on with their research, scholarly, and creative activities. Many students had to modify their projects and presentations, analyze their data and meet with their mentor virtually, and make other adaptations to ensure their participation in this event. We would like to recognize and share the results of our students’ hard work and applaud their commitment to their disciplines and goals.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy this year’s presentations, take pride in our students’ efforts, and offer them congratulations on their successes. I would also like to extend sincere gratitude to our faculty mentors and volunteers who consistently go above and beyond to support their students and the activities of our office. Our continued growth and success would not be possible without your passion, generosity, and commitment. The success of your students reflects the transference of your knowledge and skills to the next generation of scholars and researchers. Thank you all for your support and attendance today, and I hope you will continue to participate in future OSR events.


Christina M. Hassija, Ph.D.
