The Undergraduate Research and Service Learning Symposium will be held Feb. 11-12 in University Hall. The event will be open to friends, family, and members of the Louisiana Tech and Ruston community.

This annual showcase celebrates the academic research, scholarly activity, and service-learning experiences of students within each of the five colleges.

“The annual symposium is the only time during the academic year that all five colleges come together to celebrate the work of our students and faculty in various areas of research and service-learning,” said Dr. Jamie Newman, Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies for the College of Applied and Natural Sciences.

Through presentations and networking opportunities, participants have the opportunity to learn from each other. The top presentations will be selected to represent Louisiana Tech University at the University of Louisiana Academic Summit to be held in April.

“This event offers students the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom to address a scholarly question, investigate a phenomenon, solve a global challenge or address a community need,” Newman said. “This symposium exemplifies the experiential learning that Louisiana Tech strives to offer its students.”
