The UW System Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity will be held April 26, 2019 at UW-Green Bay. 

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. 

Information for 2019 is not yet available.

Here is the information from 2018 to give you a sense of what may be planned: we have hotel rooms reserved that will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for 15 students for the night of Thursday, April 19th. Pre-conference events on Thursday will include a tour of Lambeau Field, an opportunity to explore the new Title Town District, and a networking social with hors d'oeuvres. Space is limited.

If you wish to be considered to represent UWL at this conference, email URC, urc@uwlax.edu, with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Do you have any co-authors that will be attending? If so, provide their names.
  • Mentor's name (copy your mentor on this email)
  • Presentation title
  • Are you signing up for both days or Friday only? (Note: students signing up for Friday only will have only their registration fee covered; transportation will be the responsibility of the student.)
  • If you will be attending both days, will you be using UWL provided transportation (bus or minivan) or driving yourself? Your answer will not commit you at this time; it is just being asked for our planning purposes.
  • If you will be attending both days, will you be using UWL provided lodging or have you made alternate arrangements?

Registration for 2018 will open December 1st and close February 28th.

Do not register until you have contacted URC and received a confirmation that we have reserved a spot for you. Your confirmation email will contain a link to the registration page and other instructions.
