VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

It's Inauguration Week for President Bill McKinney at Valdosta State University. And the theme is engaged innovation.

Activities began today with a research symposium that highlighted student and faculty collaborative research over the past year.

200 undergraduates showed off innovative projects in various academic fields from cancer research to theater lighting research.

"This is more than the old term paper that I thought of when I was an undergraduate. These students are making original and unique contributions to their disciplines, which will be published and disseminated across the county and across the globe," said James LaPlant, Interim Graduate School Dean.

Inauguration Week continues tomorrow with Service Day.

Students will spend time volunteering in the Lowndes County community.
