Provost's Honors Symposium

Shining the spotlight on research

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.
