SMITHFIELD, R.I.  - Kathryn D. Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space, will discuss earth observation and prediction and her experiences as a scientist, astronaut and explorer at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, in Bryant University's Janikies Theater, 1150 Douglas Pike.

Dr. Sullivan's presentation, which is free and open to the public, is part of Bryant University's second annual Research and Engagement Day, known as REDay. Classes are canceled through 5 p.m. so that faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as industry and community partners associated with Bryant can participate in a daylong showcase of research, creativity and innovative academic accomplishments.

Sullivan says she is drawn to outer space and under sea, "realms where, by rights, us soft-bodied critters have no business being." She also is fascinated by the technology that enables humans to be at home in each of these worlds. "I marvel at the ability of clever, creative, curious people to muster technology to let us take ourselves and our intellects to exotic and crazy places," she told an audience in 2008.


Getting ‘REDay’ for research

January 30th, 2012

BizEd magazine, a publication of AACSB International. features Bryant's inaugural Research and Engagement Day (REDay) in its Idea Exchange column.

The second annual REDay, to be held on campus April 18, will be open to the public. "Showcasing academics is a challenge for many universities, especially those that aren't Research I," Carol DeMoranville, professor of marketing and one of the organizers of the inaugural REDay, told the magazine. "There's so much going on here. We just want to celebrate our academics."
