The Provost's Honors Symposium is an annual event that showcases exceptional student research, scholarship, and creative activity at UWEC. Faculty mentors and departments nominate outstanding student projects, which are then reviewed by the University Honors Council. Provost Kleine convenes the symposium, where selected students present their work in a professional conference setting. A companion event to CERCA, PHS is sponsored by the University Honors Program.
11th Annual Provost's Honors Symposium for Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity
Friday, April 23, 2021
In 2021, the Provost’s Honors Symposium will take the form of a synchronous, virtual event via Zoom. Over the course of 16 moderated sessions, students representing disciplines from across the university will present their original research, scholarship, and creative projects. Because the event will be virtual, we are thrilled to welcome students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends, family, and community members, from near and far, to join us in lively discussion of students’ work.
With nearly 90 students presenting 46 scholarly and creative projects in over two dozen disciplines, there is something for everyone. The conference will kick-off with a Welcome + Opening Remarks session at 12:30 p.m. with sessions running from 1:00 - 5:30 p.m. The conference program and schedule below provide session links and details of the presentations.
How Zoom PHS sessions will work
Our session moderators will admit audience members when the session begins.
In the session, please keep yourself muted until all speakers have presented. Feel free to applaud for speakers using the emojis you’ll find under “reactions” on the tool bar at the bottom of your screen.
During the discussion at the end of each session, please either type questions in the chat or use the “raise hand” button (found under “reactions” at the tool bar at the bottom of your screen) to indicate that you would like to ask a question. The moderators will call on you and will read questions from the chat, in turn.
Thank you for supporting our outstanding student researchers!
