Celebration of Learning 2015

The annual Celebration of Learning will take place on May 6.

This annual event gives students the opportunity to share their scholarly and creative work and be a part of a campus-wide community of learners. Students, faculty and staff are invited to submit proposals for presentations, posters, and performances.

Student presentations and performances will run concurrently with faculty panels on scholarship and teaching. Featured student, faculty, and alumni speakers will be scheduled throughout the day.

The Celebration of Learning began as a student research symposium in 1997, and is the result of hundreds of hours of collaborative work between students and faculty members.

For more information, contact Dr. Jeffrey Ratliff-Crain, associate dean, 309-794-7331.
