Student engagement in research, artistry and service is a hallmark of the NIU education. And…
The amazing creativity and discoveries of NIU students will be in full bloom this spring during NIU’s eighth annual Undergraduate Research and Artistry Day.
The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 25, in the Duke Ellington Ballroom of the Holmes Student Center.
The accompanying video story, which features past projects by NIU students working under the guidance of faculty mentors, provides a taste of what’s to come. Hundreds of students will present work during the event, organized by the Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning (OSEEL).
“Participation continues to be strong with more than 200 project submissions representing all colleges,” said Destiny McDonald, OSEEL’s assistant director for undergraduate research.
“This year, we will be offering many new elements to the event such as ‘Table Talks,’ live artistry performances and a spotlight on the Child Development Lab. We will even be featuring ‘research projects’ from a few of the lab’s future Huskies,” McDonald added.
The day also will include the Community Engagement Showcase, scheduled from noon to 2 p.m. The showcase is an annual celebration of outstanding community-based engagement initiatives. Students who have participated in various service projects will share their experiences.
