Undergraduate Research Poster Session

Thursday, April 11

1750 University Hall

The Poster Session is an opportunity for undergraduate students who were recently or are currently engaged in a research project connected to a field of study housed in the School of Literatures, Cultural Studies and Linguistics, to share their findings with the UIC community. Participants will design posters that highlight the key insights of their research and will present the posters along with a summary of their project.
