Friday Morning Seminars
Due to COVID-19 all remaining Spring 2020 CURL Friday Morning Seminars have been canceled. We have given our speakers the opportunity to join us again next fall. Please check back for updates.
CURL Friday Morning Seminars are held regularly on Friday mornings during fall & spring semesters from 10:30am until 12:00pm in Cuneo Hall, Room 417. Loyola faculty, students, staff, community members, and guests are welcome.
These seminars are a time for CURL graduates, undergraduates, staff, faculty, and community members to discuss their thoughts and experiences with community-based initiatives and/or relevant research. Please note: Unavoidable changes may be necessary. Call 773.508.8521 to confirm specific presentations.
