The Association of Private Enterprise Education® recognized Stonehill students Margaret Tracy '16 and O’Shane Morgan '16 with 2nd place in the Undergraduate Research Competition. Prizes for the contest were awarded on April 5, 2016 at The Association’s International Conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring keynote speaker Dr. John B. Taylor of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
The Undergraduate Research Competition, co-sponsored by the Liberty Fund, Inc., solicited undergraduate research from The Association’s general themes of political economy, private enterprise education, and free markets, but welcomed research from any topic.
Participants displayed and presented their research during a special reception at the 2016 Conference. Tracy and Morgan were awarded 2nd place for their research presentation titled “Whither the Liberal Arts? An Investigation of the Return to a Liberal Arts Degree.”
