The first Royster Lightning Talks took place on Tuesday, March 18th, 2015 at the Graduate Student Center. Royster Lightning Talks are a way for Roysters to present on topics of interest, create an open space for discussion, and raise awareness about Royster research across the University. In this session, 4 Royster Fellows talked for 7-10 minutes on aspects of the topic of " Experiencing Difference in Scientific, Social, and Historical Contexts ". Discussion followed with the group.

Speakers included: Todd Jensen (Social Work), Gary Guadagnolo (History), James Taylor (Chemistry) and Nikhil Tomar (Occupational Science). The speakers did an excellent job and the committee thanks them as well as the Roysters who attended to show their support!
