The eighth annual Loras College Legacy Symposium will once again showcase the stellar work of students and faculty this spring – but with a little different platform.
On March 17, the Symposium will be presented entirely online to allow for a safe event during a pandemic. This means the posters, videos and presentations will be available to a broader audience around the world beyond the physical constraints of campus.
“While the venue for this year is new (online), you can expect the same incredible experience you have had in the past,” Valerie Bell, associate professor of criminal justice, said. “As always, the Symposium will include high-quality presentations by faculty, staff, and students. However, the online format provides new and exciting options regarding how to present, including both synchronous and asynchronous oral presentations and posters.”
Any student interested in being a part of this historic Loras event should contact a faculty or staff member. You can also reach out to the Legacy Symposium committee members with questions.
All proposals and abstracts are due no later than January 22, 2021.
