Abstract Deadline: Friday, March 19, 2021 The JU Symposium is a research and scholarship conference for JU students. The goal is to provide an opportunity for all JU students (freshmen-graduate students) to present their work in a professional setting. This experience provides an opportunity for JU students to enhance their written and oral communication skills through a formal conference presentation. This platform also helps students develop their presentation skills in the digital world.
Every spring, a research symposium is sponsored for the public presentation of the results of students’ research and creative projects.Students also have opportunities to submit their work for presentation at state, regional, and national conferences in their disciplines and at the National Council on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) conference.
