Encourage students to apply to present at Undergraduate Symposium

The Undergraduate Symposium is the university’s premier opportunity to showcase the research, service learning, and other creative and scholarly projects of our students.  Their work is consistently of extraordinary quality; it demonstrates their emerging status as young professionals and scholars.  We are extremely proud of our students and their accomplishments.  And, of course, they could not have been so successful without your support and encouragement.

This spring marks the 12th anniversary of the Undergraduate Symposium; it will take place this year on Thursday, April 15, 2010, in Memorial Union. It is open to all University of Wisconsin-Madison students enrolled during the 2009-2010 academic year, including those who graduated in December 2009.  Students may present work they did at any time during the academic year, including in fall 2009 courses. Please note that applications and abstracts will be due on February 19, through the Symposium Web site.

Please encourage your own students to apply.  Presenting one’s work at the Undergraduate Symposium is an important part of students’ professional development.  Many of our colleagues make participation in the Symposium a required part of their students’ research and scholarship experience. For more information, please contact Laurie Mayberry in the Provost’s office at 262-5246 or
