The JU Symposium is a research/scholarship conference for students and faculty. This is a well-established, wonderful event. Our ultimate goal is to provide an opportunity for all JU students (freshmen-graduate students) and faculty an exciting opportunity to present polished work in a professional setting. This will help JU students develop unique expertise and advanced presentation skills.
