The University of Louisiana System has a long history of commitment to excellence in teaching and collaboration across its institutions. Those tenets are continued in this annual event with attention to service learning, undergraduate research and artistic creativity in one system-wide conference.

We hope that you will make the most of this two-day event, attending as many diverse presentations as possible, broadening your knowledge base, and forging new friendships with colleagues across the system.
