Provost's Honors Symposium to highlight faculty-nominated student projectsApril 29, 2013
EAU CLAIRE — Eighty students will present 42 research, scholarly and creative projects in 26 disciplines at the third annual Provost's Honors Symposium for Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity May 1 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
Students' presentations will take place from 1-5:15 p.m. on the third floor of the W.R. Davies Student Center. There is no charge to attend the symposium sessions, which are open to the public. See the symposium schedule for the names of student presenters and their faculty nominators, as well as presentation topics, times and locations.
Students participating in the symposium were nominated by their faculty mentors or academic departments and then selected by the University Honors Council from a pool of all nominees.
"The Symposium showcases top-notch student research, scholarship and creative work from programs and departments across the university," said Dr. Jeff Vahlbusch, University Honors Program director. "The selection process is competitive, and the results are truly stunning. I encourage everyone on campus and in the broader community to come marvel at and learn from the extraordinary work of our students."
The University Honors Program founded the symposium as a way of pursuing one of its four main program goals, "to promote and support intellectual and scholarly achievement, great teaching and student-faculty collaboration across the university," Vahlbusch said.
The Provost's Honors Symposium is sponsored by the UW-Eau Claire Provost's Office, Office of Research and Sponsored Programs and University Honors Program.
