Undergraduate Programs

One of the key constituencies of the STEM Center is undergraduate students, including those enrolled at DePaul but also students affiliated with the university through partner programs and collaborations.

Some of the programs we provide support for include:

Chicago Area Undergraduate Research Symposium (CAURS)
This is an annual symposium for undergraduates from DePaul, the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, UIC, IIT, and Loyola University. Held each spring, CAURS provides students an opportunity to present their research, engage in discussions with colleagues, and to attend plenary and round-table discussions. DePaul hosted the event in April, 2010. This year's event is on Saturday, April 11, 2015.  Click here to view the CAURS website.


Natural Science, Mathematics and Technology Undergraduate Research Showcase
This annual event is held each November and open to undergraduates conducting research in the natural sciences, mathematics, technology and computer science, geography, and anthropology. Click here for more information.
