2018 UIC Student Research Forum and Impact Day
If you are involved in any type of research project, DON’T HIT DELETE — This announcement is for you!
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, in conjunction with the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Affairs, Honors College and the Center for Student Involvement, is pleased to announce the 2018 Student Research Forum (SRF) and UIC Impact Day, which will be held on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. This important campus-wide event showcases undergraduate, graduate and professional student research covering a broad range of scholarship: Art/Design/Humanities; Business/Computer Science/Mathematics; Engineering/Physical Sciences; Life Sciences; and Social Sciences. Awards will be given to the top projects. In addition to our traditional Student Research Forum, we will once again be including UIC Impact Day as a part of this event. UIC Impact Day provides students another opportunity to showcase their scholarly pursuits in and beyond the classroom. Students present their experiences, service, study abroad, internships, student employment, career development, leadership, and/or involvement.
Registration for the Forum and for UIC Impact Day is open. Further details on the event and specific instructions for participation are provided on the SRF website. http://www.research.uic.edu/srf
