Undergraduate Research Program

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is excited to host the nineteenth annual UW System Symposium for Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activity.

This event showcases undergraduate creativity, achievement, research, service-learning and community-based research from all over the state of Wisconsin in all areas of study, including the humanities, fine arts, biological sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences.

The UW System Symposium is open to all undergraduates and encourages guests and mentors to attend. The Symposium provides an opportunity for students to present their work in a professional setting while gaining public speaking and presentation skills. Additionally, it serves as a forum for other members of the campus and our community to engage in student research.

UW System Symposium will be held virtually on Wednesday April 28, 2021.

With the UW System Symposium being virtual this year, it will be powered by ForagerOne where their mission is to create networks and tools that promote and accelerate research globally, at all levels, in every field.

Students will upload their presentations when registering which will then proudly be displayed on the UW System Symposium website provided by ForagerOne. 

For questions or to request accommodations, please email us symposium@uww.edu.
