The Undergraduate Research and Engagement Symposium (URES)
Saturday, April 22, 2023
In Spring 2023, the Undergraduate Research and Engagement Symposium will be returning in person during the Celebration of Student Achievements, Scholarship, and Creative Works, (April 13 - 23, 2023).
Each year, the Undergraduate Research and Engagement Symposium features presentations on undergraduate research and community engagement projects supported by LUROP fellowships, external programs, academic courses, service-learning experiences, internships, or community partnerships. The symposium engages the diverse ways undergraduate students advance Loyola’s Jesuit mission of “expanding knowledge in service to humanity through learning, justice, and faith.” This year, we are hosting Loyola's Undergraduate Research and Engagement Symposium in person on Saturday, April 22, 2023 in Mundelein Auditorium.
