Work with research experts

Most faculty at UWEC get their students involved – very involved – in their research, scholarship, and creative activity. Did you know we're the UW System's "Center for Excellence for Faculty and Undergraduate Student Research"? So what does that fancy title mean? During your four years on campus, you could be asked to join real research projects in many disciplines. You'll get to work alongside our great faculty, who are experts in their fields. Each spring we devote an entire week to celebrating students, and you might have a chance to present your work at a national conference and have it published.

This is a place where you are encouraged to question the world around you. Go explore what you've always been passionate about and see what kind of impact you can have.

First and foremost: Researcher completes first-ever University Honors thesis

University Honors student Nikki Weiss seized the opportunity to do research her freshman year. That first experience sparked a natural curiosity and led her to complete a Senior Honors thesis - the first in UWEC Honors history - in Forensic Anthropology.


Provost's Honors Symposium

If you've put in days, weeks, and possibly years into your research, you'll want to present it to others and learn from their feedback. The Provost's Honors Symposium is an Honors-led annual event that showcases exemplary Blugold student research, scholarship, and creative activity in a professional conference format. Participation is competitive – researchers are nominated by faculty members and selected by Honors Council members based on the quality of the work. In most years, about 75 students present papers in nearly 40 disciplines to very appreciate audiences.
