Student Research Symposium

The Student Research Symposium provides students at UWM at Waukesha and Washington County 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 the Waukesha campus in late spring.

Students interested in submitting a proposal should contact or contact Bob Bermant (Psychology), Timothy Dunn (Philosophy), Suzanne Joneson (Biology), Ellyn Lem (English), or Scott Silet (Library).

This year's Symposium will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, in C101.

The event is free and open to the public.
