A platform for undergraduate students with marginalized identities to showcase their scholarly work. MURALS is inclusive, rigorous, and culturally relevant.

On March 29, 2024, students will present their scholarly work (creative writing, visual and performing arts, entrepreneurship, 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, administration and FAMILY! 

At the end of the day, awards and accolades will be presented to students, and we will also acknowledge CSU alumni.

Through this event, students have the chance to 

  • Enhance collaboration and communication skills with diverse peers and faculty
  • Develop the ability to independently synthesize, communicate, and understand the significance of their research while improving interpersonal and leadership skills for professional development.
  • And more!
