Our annual Undergraduate Research & Engagement Symposium will be held on Saturday, April 21st during Loyola’s Weekend of Excellence. Each year, we celebrate the diverse and exciting ways undergraduate students advance Loyola’s Jesuit mission of “expanding knowledge in service to humanity through learning, justice, and faith.” Students who have participated in undergraduate research or community engagement projects through courses, LUROP fellowships, external programs, service-learning courses, academic internship courses, community partnerships, and/or independent study during the 2017-2018 academic year are eligible to participate in the symposium. The deadline to register for the symposium is Friday, March 16th.
Each year the CEL publishes its annual report sharing the story of Loyola students, faculty instructors, and community partners engaging in deep learning and community development. View the updated IMPACT report here.
The Center for Experiential Learning connects Loyola students to opportunities in Chicago organizations through academic internships, service-learning, and undergraduate research, while creating learning portfolios. Find out all the resources the CEL provides for Loyola students here.
