TELS is an interdisciplinary symposium. One of its most positive aspects is the cross-platform exposure to research, creative activity, service learning, or study abroad experiences centered on themes of interest. To highlight the interdisciplinary focus, each oral and poster session will be organized around these themes: Culture, Heritage & the Creative Economy, Business & Enterprise, Governance & Society, Sustainability, Agriculture, & the Environment, Improving lives and communities, Logic and Reasoning, and Science, Technology and Society.
The event will also include a graduate school and undergraduate transfer fair for students looking for education options beyond their current institutions. For a current list of registered institutions please visit the website.
