NIU’s Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning (OSEEL) will host the annual Undergraduate Research and Artistry Day (URAD) and Community Engagement Showcase (CES) from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25, in the Duke Ellington Ballroom of the Holmes Student Center.
Any undergraduate student who has participated in a faculty-mentored research or artistry project is eligible to showcase his/her work at Undergraduate Research and Artistry Day. This includes independent study, capstone projects, SEF, EURA, USOAR, SROP, Research Rookies or any other related research/artistry projects.
In addition, undergraduate students currently enrolled at NIU who have participated in community-based projects, including work completed during a service learning course, internship or with student organizations, are encouraged to showcase their work the Community Engagement Showcase. Last year, students from organizations including Huskie Alternative Breaks, Huskie Service Scholars, NIU Service Leaders, Sophomores in Service, Lambda Sigma and CAUSE, showcased their work at the CES.
Students have the option to present their work in a poster, exhibit, performance and digital media display, or through an informal table talk. OSEEL will offer multiple Poster Design & Project Display Workshops to assist students with planning their presentations this March.
