Each April, we celebrate our diverse community of learners at the Student Symposium, a showcase of student-led research projects from nearly 30 disciplines in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Student researchers share their scholarly work with the campus community and the public in the form of oral presentations, poster sessions, performances, and art exhibits.

The Symposium gives students the opportunity to present their work in a professional setting, comparable to any international conference or discipline-specific symposium. It also helps them gain experience speaking publicly and translating their knowledge to a broad audience.

Since the outbreak of the novel corona virus pandemic, the sharing of scholarly and creative work has moved to virtual settings; online is where today’s researchers and artists engage each other in exchange of ideas and where they find their audiences. At the tabs above, you will find two kinds of presentation formats available this year. “Student Presentations” includes a complete listing of all symposium participants with titles of their projects.

Visit the 2021 Student Symposium website for the full symposium program and recordings of synchronous events.
