Some 20 students representing all disciplines across the CU-Boulder campus will compete for prizes in the CU-LEAD Alliance Fourth Annual Student Symposium on March 10 at the University Memorial Center. It’s free and open to the public.
The CU-LEAD Alliance Student Symposium is a campuswide event, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Room 235, designed to showcase the creative and scholarly projects and research of first-generation and underrepresented students. The symposium’s goal is to provide an interdisciplinary platform for student, faculty, and staff to engage in dialogue and encourage students to consider pursuing a postgraduate education.
Symposium presenters will professionally present their research or project from the 2013-14 academic year and describe how their work contributes to their respective discipline in a supportive environment of their peers, educators, university community and corporate supporters.
Presenters are competing for top Presentation Awards in the disciplinary areas of: Arts and Humanities, Biological Sciences, STEM, Social Sciences and Professional Fields that will be juried by faculty sponsors.
The event is sponsored by the 2013-14 Diversity and Equity Grant and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement.
