Opportunity for your students: Annual 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.  Thank you for that.

This spring marks the 13th anniversary of the Undergraduate Symposium; it will take place this year on Tuesday, April 12, 2011, in Memorial Union. It is open to all University of Wisconsin-Madison students enrolled during the 2010-2011 academic year, including those who graduated in December 2010.  Students may present work they did at any time during the academic year, including in fall 2010 courses. Please note that applications and abstracts will be due on March 1, 2011, 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.
