Undergrad research, community engagement events set for April 21

URADMark your calendars!

NIU’s Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning will host the sixth annual Undergraduate Research and Artistry Day (URAD) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 21, in the Duke Ellington Ballroom of the Holmes Student Center.

More than 300 students presented their work at last year’s event; the 2015 edition is expected to be even bigger.

Any undergraduate student who has participated in a faculty-mentored research or artistry project is eligible to showcase his or her work at the sixth annual URAD. 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.

April 21 is also the second annual Community Engagement Showcase (CES).

Undergraduate students currently enrolled at NIU who have participated in community-based service or research, including work completed during a service learning course, internship or student organization, are encouraged to showcase their work at the CES.

Students from various organizations, including NIU Deaf Pride, Huskie Alternative Breaks, Huskie Service Scholars and Sophomores in Service, participated in last year’s inaugural CES.

Both events are free and open to the public.
