What is MURALS?

Multicultural Undergraduate Research Art and Leadership Symposium (MURALS) is a two-day undergraduate research symposium that intentionally reaches out to students of color in various disciplines to expose them to a variety of research opportunities. Mentoring, presenting scholarly work, networking, and learning about multicultural leadership are four main aspects of the program.

On March 24th, participants will take part in academic workshops that will aid in the process of continuing their education beyond their Bachelor’s Degree. On March 25th, students will present their scholarly work (creative writing, visual and performing arts, S.T.E.M., social sciences, humanities) while graduate students and faculty provide feedback and faculty serve as mentors. Throughout MURALS, students will have the opportunity to showcase their scholarly work and represent themselves, their departments and colleges to faculty, staff, peers, alumni and administration. At the end of the day, awards and accolades will be presented to students in an awards ceremony.
