Invitation to Big iDeas Spring Symposium

Dear Colleagues:

As you know, Big iDeas at SMU is an undergraduate research program that will
engage and support SMU students who are interested in addressing key problems
faced by the Dallas and Metroplex area.  At the end of January, I received some
excellent proposals from our undergraduates, which were reviewed by a Grant
Panel comprised of representatives from faculty, students, and the Dallas
community.  I am pleased to announce that 9 project teams were chosen to be
grant recipients of the Big iDeas Competition for 2013.

I am inviting you to attend a Big iDeas Symposium where our grant
recipients will have the opportunity to present their Big iDeas and to explain
why they believe their projects are important to the Metroplex area.  It
will be held on Tuesday, April 23, at 10:00 a.m. in the Hughes Trigg Forum. The
Symposium should last approximately 1-1/2 hours, followed by a Reception in
the Prefunction area outside of the Forum. These students, along with their
faculty advisors, have worked hard to develop a research proposal and are to be
commended for their efforts.  I hope that you will join me in attending the
Symposium to learn about their Big iDeas.
