In Announcements, by , on May 2nd, 2018

On Friday afternoon, just a few miles north from where county officials were announcing details of new complimentary Wi-Fi service in Niagara Falls, Jeffrey Weber and Noah Barnard were unveiling a mobile application they’ve developed to connect people with local services, training programs and volunteer opportunities.

Weber and Barnard’s presentation of their “Connect and Protect Niagara” app was one of approximately 112 projects showcased during Niagara University’s annual Undergraduate Research Conference on April 27. The event, sponsored by NU’s Honors program, highlights much of the scholarly work that takes place behind the scenes at Niagara, where faculty-guided undergraduate student research occurs at nearly twice the rate of that at other national institutions, according to National Survey for Student Engagement data.
