OUR invites the campus community and all members of our off-campus community to attend the 2020 Student Scholar Symposium and Faculty Research Showcase. With each year we strive to have as much diversity in our presentations as possible. Engaging students across all disciplines is our goal and every year we expand our representation of all fields of study that UWF has to offer. This event is a wonderful oppurtunity to view the incredible research that your fellow classmates have been working on over the course of the academic year. The ways in which these students and faculty have come together to present their work is truly captivating.  


With over a 1200 attendees at the 2019 symposium, we expect that we will just keep growing.

Dr. Schwartz, the OUR Director, continues to work tirelessly at spreading the awareness of the many programs that OUR has that can connect you with a faculty mentor, get you involved with research, and will help open your mind to cross-discipline communication. We, in OUR, encourage all of the UWF undergraduates to get involved in research in some form before entering into your graduate work. The experience serves to be invaluable, and the possibilities that we will help you see are endless. Check out our OUR programs today and see if there is any area of our resources that you would like to explore.


All students being supported by OUR in any program that OUR houses will be required to present at the annual Student Scholar Symposium and Faculty Research Showcase. If you have any questions regarding this requirement or if you have any questions about the many programs we offer to the UWF undergraduate population, please do not hesitate ask.

 The OUR student involvement growth was showcased at University Common's building, at the UWF main campus, in Pensacola, Florida. Students from all 5 colleges presented their work, along with introducing the UWF CFPA's all day performance pieces on the CFPA Mainstage Theatre. The event has sense grown to include oral presentations, the engineering showcase, art exhibits, and course group work presentations. OUR welcomes symposium involvement from all areas on campus, and our mission of all inclusive amongst all UWF disciplines remains as a top priority.
