Twenty-five students in research, service, creative and internship programs from across campus will talk about their work during Family Weekend at SMU’s Fall 2014 Engaged Learning Symposium. The event takes place 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24 in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Forum.
Student presenters will include SMU’s Maguire and Irby Family Foundation Public Service Fellows, Summer Research Fellows and University Honors Richter Research Fellows, as well as two Engaged Learning Fellows.
The Engaged Learning Fellows participating in the fall symposium are on track to graduate in December.
For the second year in a row, this annual fall event will take place during SMU Family Weekend, which provides unique opportunities for parents to see the scope of their students’ achievements, says Director Susan Kress.
“As opportunities for undergraduate research and community service across the campus grow, we are delighted to host students engaged in high-level activities at the fall symposium,” she adds.
