Poster Presentations

Poster sessions are the largest component of the symposium and feature student research and community engagement projects from across the disciplines. The 2019 symposium will feature two poster sessions with each session lasting 90 minutes in Mundelein Auditorium. Students will be assigned to present in either the morning or afternoon poster session (but not both) and are expected to be present for the full session.

What is a poster presentation?

Poster presentations create a visual display of your research or community engagement project that is appealing, well-organized, and representative of your research or project experience. Posters should start a dialogue with audience and community members. For more information on designing, developing, and printing your poster presentations, check out our workshops below or use the menu to your left.  


Each year, the Center for Experiential Learning collaborates with the Writing Center and the Libraries to host a series of workshops designed to help you prepare for the Undergraduate Research & Engagement Symposium. Next year's workshop series will be announced in the fall.
