Weekly Research Update Special Edition: Discover UofSC 2022

Something New: Discover UofSC 2022 keynote video features outstanding UofSC faculty researchers

The Office of the Vice President for Research is excited to share a brand-new concept for the 2022 Discover UofSC keynote. Instead of a traditional keynote talk, we have launched a video featuring an inspiring and informative conversation among four of the University of South Carolina’s distinguished researchers from a wide variety of fields of study, moderated by skilled host August “Augie” Grant, the J. Rion McKissick Professor of Journalism in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications. In the video, keynote panelists Dr. Gloria Swindler Boutte, Dr. Timothy Mousseau, Dr. Melissa Nolan and Dr. Mark Smith share their career insights and research experiences with the goal of inspiring a new generation of University of South Carolina scholars. The 2022 keynote panelists will join us at Discover UofSC tomorrow as Distinguished Research Ambassadors to continue the conversation with presenters and other participants.
