The Senior Research Symposium is a crucial component of the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race (CSER) academic experience, which seeks to generate innovative thinking about race, ethnicity, indignity and other categories of difference in order to better understand their role and impact in modern societies. Publicized campus-wide, the symposium showcases thesis projects by seniors in the major.

The symposium offers CSER students an opportunity to share and receive feedback on their original research. This event enables students to hone their oral presentation skills to supplement the analytical projects they have prepared on a subject of their choice.
