Faculty members at UWEC are happy to get their students deeply involved in their research, scholarship and creative activity. Did you know that we are the UW System's "Center of Excellence for Faculty and Undergraduate Student Research?" What that means in practice is that during your time on campus you might be asked to assist with actual research in many disciplines. You'll get to work alongside faculty who are experts in their fields, and who are eager to teach. You'll find opportunities to present your work at national conferences and might even end up publishing your research results.
Provost's Honors Symposium
If you've put in days, weeks or even 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 appreciative audiences.
