The UW System Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity will be held virtually in 2021 and hosted by UW-Whitewater. 

Every year, the UW System Symposium is held at a UW System School in the spring. The Symposium gives undergraduate students in all disciplines, from all University of Wisconsin institutions, an opportunity to present their scholarly work. Students participate through oral presentations, poster displays, gallery exhibits, and artistic performances.

The Office of Undergraduate Research & Creativity coordinates and funds travel for several students to present at the Symposium. 

For 2020:

The event will be held virtually. The date will be announced soon.
