On Friday, April 11, 2014
Northeastern Illinois University will hold its
22nd Annual Student Research
and Creative Activities Symposium

 22nd Annual Symposium online abstract submission starts February 1, 2014

Founded in 1993, this event has grown from 25 to 180 student presentations and has become the crown jewel of scholastic events at NEIU. Students who have participated in the past agree that this is an outstanding program and a wonderful opportunity for students engaged in research and other creative activities to interact with each other and present their work before an audience of peers and faculty. In addition, graduate schools will be impressed. Participation in the Symposium can be listed on a student’s resume/vita. And it’s fun!

The NEIU 22nd Annual Student Research & Creative Activities Symposium will be held on Friday, April 11, 2014. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is Tuesday, March 3, 2014. The Abstracts and Symposium Registration Form should be emailed to with subject line "NEIU Student Symposium".

Students who are interested in participating in the Symposium will need to select a faculty sponsor to work with while preparing the abstract and presentation. Because the Symposium Committee looks for specific features in abstracts, it will be beneficial for students to review the abstracts posted on this web site. If you have any questions, please contact any of the members of the steering committee.
