What is the URSCI Expo?

The URSCI Expo is a daylong showcase of Dominican University undergraduate students’ distinctive and independent research, scholarship and creative investigations.  These presentations have been gathered from students who have received Undergraduate Research Support Awards, gained funding as Summer Scholars, completed Degree with Distinction Projects in the Honors Program, or have received faculty support and notice for other strong academic work.

What is the Global Learning Symposium?

GLS is a public opportunity for students to share experiences that have shaped their global understanding.  We welcome applications from students who have achieved those insights as international students, through studying abroad, or by working across cultural divides at home through community-based service or immigration experiences.

The URSCI Office works to connect undergraduate students with opportunities to pursure research across all disciplines.

It offers a variety of initiatives to help students fund, earn credit for and present their research projects.

URSCI hosts an annual expo at which students present their research to the entire Dominican community.
