UW-Eau Claire Students to Display
Research at Wisconsin Capitol

 MAILED:  April 15, 2004

EAU CLAIRE — Several University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire undergraduate students will display their research April 27 in Wisconsin’s Capitol in Madison.

Student research posters will be on display from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in the State Capitol Rotunda on the first floor of the Capitol. There will be a short program at noon in the rotunda.

The event, titled “Posters in the Rotunda: A Celebration of Undergraduate Research,” is sponsored by the UW System.

As the UW System’s designated Center of Excellence for Faculty and Undergraduate Research Collaborations, UW-Eau Claire students and faculty regularly work together to complete nationally recognized, cutting-edge research in a variety of disciplines. Students across campus have research opportunities often found only at large graduate research institutions. U.S. News and World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges 2004” lists UW-Eau Claire among the top 39 national institutions engaged in undergraduate research/creative projects.

In Madison, UW-Eau Claire students and faculty mentors will join researchers from other System schools to discuss their work and the value of undergraduate research.

For more information about the event, contact Chris Lind, assistant vice chancellor of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, at (715) 836-3405 or lindct@uwec.edu.

The following students and projects will be part of the April 27 Madison exhibit:
