TIFFIN UNIVERSITY, Tiffin, OH— Tiffin University will host its second annual Virtual Research Conference on Tuesday, April 21, from 4 to 9 p.m. using Blackboard Collaborate. The third annual Tiffin On-Campus Research Conference will be held on Wednesday, April 22, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tiffin’s campus. The theme of both conferences is the “Impact of Research”.
Approximately 150 Tiffin University undergraduate and graduate students from all academic schools will present their original research.
Virtual Research Conference
Sponsored by TU’s Center for Online and Extended Learning, graduate and undergraduate online students will present live in a virtual room. They will share their knowledge and expertise in their field of study.
The virtual conference will also include a keynote, “Fact of Fiction: Exploring preferences for information consumption,” by Kaylee Lassko, TU graduate and former Virtual Research Conference participant. Lassko’s research explores information consumed across media types with a focus on the propagation of disinformation and misinformation. She is a Senior Operations Research Analyst/Lead Effects Coordinator for SkyBridge Tactical at the U.S. Central Command in Information Operations.
“We want our online students to set themselves apart from other graduates by applying their knowledge and cultivating a professional identity in their field,” said Dr. Michelle Meadows, Chair of the Masters in Education Program and co-planner of this conference.
On-campus students can watch the conference virtually in the Main Classroom Building room 14 on April 21 from 4 to 9 p.m.

Tiffin On-Campus Conference
Sponsored by the Office of the Provost, undergraduate students will present on campus on April 22, beginning at 8 a.m. The Tiffin On-Campus Conference will include a poster session, best paper competition, an awards luncheon, and a keynote speaker.
“The Tiffin On-Campus Conference allows Tiffin University students to showcase their achievements that align with the university’s focus on High Impact Practices,” said Dr. Kristina Collins, Vice Provost for Academic Excellence, Distinctiveness, and Effectiveness. “Active participation in research builds critical thinking and presentation skills that complement what they learn in the classroom. With the third year of the conference, we are truly building a culture of educational excellence!”
Winners of the competition will be awarded at a luncheon. The luncheon will also feature a keynote speaker who will share how they have applied research in their everyday jobs.
