The purpose of the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Research Symposium is to showcase graduate and undergraduate research projects (at all stages) related to diversity. We encourage posters highlighting issues of diversity including (but not limited to): race, citizenship status, religion, age, ability and disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental illness, class and socioeconomic status, and special populations in education. The award ceremony will be held in the Lindquist Center, Jones Commons (N300 LC) from 12:30 p.m.-2:00 p.m. on Friday, January 26th, 2018. Posters will be displayed to a panel of judges to be evaluated that morning from 9-11am during an open poster session.

Please allow approximately two weeks for notice of acceptance. If accepted, you must be able to present your poster to judges and at the symposium. More details will be provided in an acceptance letter.

One poster allowed per student and any project affiliations must be clear in the proposal and poster.

Questions can be directed to Lianne Gann, graduate assistant to the College of Education Diversity Committee at or in N431 Lindquist Center.
