The Judith & G. Richard Locke Poster Symposium


This annual event showcases student and student-faculty scholarship. Participation in the poster symposium is open to all Millikin students, regardless of major or class rank. The requirement to enter is an email from your faculty sponsor certifying your poster submission as B or better grade work. The poster symposium provides students with an opportunity to share their scholarly work, and in the process, increase campus and community awareness of the variety of scholarly activities conducted by students and faculty. Further, the symposium is an excellent means of introducing and encouraging students to explore and participate research opportunities at Millikin.

Students participating in the poster symposium are eligible for cash awards provided by the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi and the Judith & G. Richard Locke Poster Awards.
