Please encourage your undergraduate students–who are engaged in research, service learning, fine art and performance–to take advantage of this opportunity to present their work to the public.
The Annual Undergraduate Symposium is a forum designed to showcase undergraduate students’ creativity, achievement and talent across all disciplines through talks, poster sessions, exhibitions, and performances. Participation in the Undergraduate Symposium helps undergraduates reflect on the value of their own and others’ creative work, develop important communication skills, and lets them share their work with people outside their own field. The Undergraduate Symposium is open to all University of Wisconsin – Madison students enrolled during the 2012-2013 academic year, including those who graduate this December. I hope you will consider encouraging students in your classes to attend the Symposium.
This year’s Undergraduate Symposium will be held Thursday, April 18, 2013, in Union South. The schedule includes a reception and a performance workshop in the evening where students can perform and discuss their creative process. The event is free and open to the public.
