Provost's Honors Symposium

Shining the spotlight on research

Another chance for Blugolds to showcase their hard work in research, scholarship and creative activity is the Provost's Honors Symposium. This annual event showcases exceptional student research, projects, and creative activity. Faculty mentors and departments nominate projects and students to present their best work to the campus and Eau Claire community. Nominated projects are reviewed and selected by the University Honors Council. The conference concludes with a fancy hors d'oeuvres reception sponsored and led by Provost Patricia Kleine.

10th Annual Provost's Honors Symposium for Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity

Friday, May 1, 2020

Faculty nominated outstanding examples of student research, scholarship, and creative activity showcase the best of undergraduate academic endeavor at UWEC.  This year, the professional-style conference, showcasing 46 presentations from disciplines representing all colleges, will be shared virtually.  Selected presentations will be uploaded for the UWEC and wider community to view, ask questions, and comment on the wide-range of research, scholarship, and creative work shared. We thank Provost Klein and ORSP for their support for 10 years!

All presentations will be available for viewing by April 30th!  The Provost's Honors Symposium is a module hosted on the CERCA course in Canvas. The presentations have been organized into four virtual "rooms" with broad areas of interdisciplinary inquiry.  The schedule linked below identifies these presentations by title and "room".  The Provost's Honors Symposium abstract program is linked below and includes a searchable index of presenters and faculty nominators/mentors as well as links to each of the presentations discussion boards.
