The Chicago Research Colloquium is an annual event that highlights exceptional undergraduate scholarship that focuses on Chicago and Chicagoland issues. Presentations are made by student finalists for the annual Chicago Studies Undergraduate Research Prize, which is awarded at the conclusion of the Colloquium.
The Spring 2023 event will be held at the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation (1155 E. 60th Street, Room 101) from 2:30-5:00 PM on Thursday, May 18 (week 9). The event will be followed by our "City in a Garden" Party/reception, featuring food and drink and the opportunity to socialize with the presenters, other graduating fourth years who've studied Chicago, and those faculty/course instructors who have taught about Chicago in the previous year. All are welcome!
