The Student Research Symposium provides students at UW-Waukesha with a unique opportunity to conduct original research and to distinguish themselves in their chosen field of study. Students work independently with a faculty sponsor to select a project topic in the fall term and present the results of their research at a multidisciplinary symposium held on campus in late spring. Students interested in submitting a proposal should contact wakhonors at uwc.edu or contact Timothy Dunn(Philosophy), Bob Bermant (Psychology), Ellyn Lem (English), or Scott Silet (Library).
This year's Symposium will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2016 in C101.
