Cuneo Hall (paper sessions) and McCormick Lounge (Coffey Hall, lunch and award reception), Lake Shore Campus

The Graduate School and the Graduate Student Advisory Council will host an interdisciplinary research symposium on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the Loyola University Lake Shore Campus, as a forum for Loyola graduate students to present their scholarly work.  

The symposium will be organized around the diverse research methods exhibited in scholarly work. The panels will consist of the following broad research categories:

-- Qualitative: the exploratory analysis of non-numerical data
-- Quantitative: the objective and systematic analysis of numerical data
-- Theoretical: analysis that applies speculative paradigms in exploratory ways
-- Mixed Methods/Other: analysis that draws on both quantitative and qualitative methods

Any current graduate student within The Graduate School is eligible to submit a presentation. As part of reaffirming Loyola's commitment to diversity, the symposium welcomes presentations in Spanish.

Submissions may be for oral, paper, or poster presentations.

Monetary awards will be given based on research category and student’s program status.


Abstracts of no more than 250 words may be submitted here for consideration by January 18, 2019.


Registration will soon be available to attend the 2019 Interdisciplinary Research Symposium.
