Opportunity for your students: UW Undergrad Symposium

The Annual Undergraduate Symposium is a forum designed to showcase undergraduate students’ creativity, achievement and talent across all disciplines through oral presentations, poster sessions, exhibitions, film shorts (new this year), 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 2013-2014 academic year, including those who graduated in December.

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 campus community and public-at-large. I hope you will also consider encouraging students in your classes to attend the Symposium even if they are not presenting.

This year’s Undergraduate Symposium will be held Thursday, April 10 in Union South. The schedule includes a performance workshop in the evening where students can perform and discuss their creative process, and a reception at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
