The 2024 Undergraduate Research and Engagement Symposium Program



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.

Registration for the 2025 Undergraduate Research & Engagement Symposium is currently CLOSED.

The Undergraduate Research and Engagement Symposium will be Saturday, April 5th, 2025.

While the event is held in person, we invite encourage students to archive their presentations in the eCommons.


You can visit the eCommons to see some of the great work that was shared by students from previous years. You may also view The 2024 Undergraduate Research and Engagement Symposium Program

Submit Presentations

Undergraduate students were welcomed to present research or community engagement projects to the public through the use of poster presentations, oral presentations, and learning portfolios. 

The symposium will be held on April 5th, 2025. 

Register to the Symposium is currently CLOSED. 

If you are planning to submit a poster for your presentation, you can find more detailed information, guidelines, and resources for creating and submitting it on our Resources page.


We invite faculty, staff, graduate students and community partners to evaluate student presentations to provide constructive and positive feedback. Providing students with meaningful feedback greatly enhances their learning and achievement.

It is our goal to provide each student with positive, learner-centered feedback from two different evaluators. If you’d like to serve as an evaluator, please click here to register by April 7th.


Each year at the Undergraduate Research & Engagement Symposium, we recognize outstanding undergraduate scholarship in research and community engagement and the faculty and graduate mentors and community partners who support and facilitate undergraduate learning during the academic year. More information about each of the awards categories, including how to nominate outstanding students, faculty, and community partners, can be found here.
