UT Tyler Honors Program

About the Lyceum

The Lyceum is the University of Texas at Tyler's largest student research showcase.

The term, lyceum, is often remembered as the location of Aristotle's school. As such, the Lyceum at UT Tyler serves as a opportunity for students to showcase their original research and work to the larger community. This annual event is held in the spring of each year and co-sponsored by the Honors Program and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.

The 6th annual Lyceum Research Showcasewill be held April 16th, 2021 in a virtual format.

A PDF of the program will be posted soon.
