The Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities’ first annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on Sustainable Urban Communities will be held at St. Catherine University on Friday, March 4.

This research symposium highlights the ways ACTC students contribute to the vibrant Twin Cities community through direct study, applied research, and community involvement.

The symposium is open to all ACTC students, staff, faculty, administrators and guests. The day will begin with concurrent panel presentations, followed by a poster session, faculty reception, shared meal and keynote presentation. The keynote, “The Art of Knowing: The Role of the Arts in Sustaining Communities,” features a panel of four local visual artists who work in and with Twin Cities communities.

More information about the symposium and a registration link are available on the ACTC website.
