About the Student Research and Creative Activities Symposium

After a year's hiatus, we are pleased to announce that the 28th NEIU Student Research and Creative Activities Symposium will be held as a virtual conference on Thursday, April 22 and Friday, April 23, 2021.

At the Student Symposium, NEIU students share their research and creative work in poster and oral presentations. Undergraduate and graduate students should secure a faculty member to sponsor their application to the Symposium if they are not already working with a research or creative activities sponsor. 

As in past years, students accepted to present at the Symposium will have an opportunity to compete for two types of awards. The Bernard Brommel Awards will recognize the strongest presentations in several categories. The NEIU Libraries Awards for Excellence in Research will recognize outstanding student efforts in the area of library-based research.

Please visit this site for future updates and supporting materials. Direct any questions to the Symposium Planning Committee at rcasymposium@neiu.eduTechnology support for presenters is available by chat (M-F 10a-4p) or by appointment through the NEIU Library Technology Desk at
