Student Scholar Symposium and Faculty Research Showcase

The Student Scholar Symposium and Faculty Research Showcase features scholarly and creative works produced through collaboration between UWF students and faculty.



Thursday, April 20, 2017
The Univeristy of West Florida, Main Campus
University Commons and Conference Center, Building 22

 The University of West Florida Student Scholars Symposium & Faculty Research Showcase brings together undergraduate and graduate students and faculty to showcase their research, scholarly, and creative activities through research poster presentations and 3-minute oral presentations. Students (undergraduate, graduate, doctorial) and faculty are invited to present their research & creative projects at the UWF Symposium.


In an effort to be more inclusive across disciplines, OUR invites faculty to submit requests to reserve room space to “host” sessions.  These faculty-hosted sessions may provide unique presentation formats (i.e., research discussion panels, performances, etc.) or they may provide a separate space to highlight research conducted as part of a particular program or course.  Consider hosting a session at the Symposium for your students to give their end-of-semester class research presentations.
