NIU’s Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning will host the third annual Summer Research Symposium from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7, in Altgeld Hall.

Undergraduate students who have participated in faculty-mentored research or artistry projects will showcase their work through posters and oral presentations.

The three main summer programs include the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP); the Latino Oral History Project (a subprogram of SROP); and the McKearn Fellows program. Each program gives students the opportunity to conduct full-time research with established NIU faculty and participate in professional development workshops.

Students participating in the Undergraduate Research Assistantship program, the Undergraduate Special Opportunities in Artistry & Research program and the University Honors Program also will present.

The Summer Research Symposium is free and open to the public. Students interested in a summer research program or getting involved in undergraduate research are encouraged to attend.
