NIU’s Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning will host the fifth annual Undergraduate Research and Artistry Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, in the Duke Ellington Ballroom of the Holmes Student Center.

Approximately 350 current undergraduate students who have participated in a faculty-mentored research or an artistry project will be showcasing their work at the fifth annual Undergraduate Research and Artistry Day.

This includes independent study, capstone projects, Undergraduate Special Opportunities in Artistry and Research, Undergraduate Research Assistantships, Summer Research Opportunities Program, Research Rookies, Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program, Engineering Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship or any other related research/artistry projects.

Prizes will be awarded in two categories: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts. In addition, one research adviser/mentor will be honored with the Faculty Mentor of the Year award.

A Community Engagement Showcase will take place from noon to 2:30 p.m. in the Glass Gallery Lounge of the Holmes Student Center. Students who have participated in community service work or service learning will highlight their efforts and projects to represent the meaningful service NIU students provide to our campus and the community.

All NIU students and surrounding community members are invited to attend both events. Light refreshments will be served.
