The Marquette community is invited to the four-day Undergraduate Research Display hosted by the FYE Program from Monday, May 1, to Thursday, May 4, in the Raynor Memorial Libraries Beaumier Suites. The event will allow participants the opportunity to talk with FYE students about their research remixes (which take the form of posters), webtexts, and interactive presentations.
At Marquette, approximately 70 percent of all undergraduates take ENGL 1002. Starting this spring, every student who completes the course also completes a full undergraduate research arc that has been calibrated to general education-level learning. Undergraduate research is one of ten high-impact educational practices identified by George Kuh in High-Impact Educational Practices: What They Are, Who Has Access to Them, and Why They Matter (2008).
The schedule is as follow:
- Monday, May 1, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, May 2, from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
- Wednesday, May 3, from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
- Thursday, May 4, from 8 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.
Drop-in attendance is welcome. Bring a friend and support FYE students’ contribution to Marquette’s pursuit of academic excellence for human well-being.
