Loyola University Chicago

Interdisciplinary Honors Program

The Honors Undergraduate Conference

The Honors Undergraduate Conference was established by Dr. Ghazal Nadi in 2020-2021. This initiative provides opportunities for students to share their research with a wider Loyola audience and to participate in a scholarly network. Students get the chance to professionalize their academic, public speaking, and event planning skills. The very first event was offered through Zoom online. The Honors Student Conference has taken place in-person since Spring 2022.
