About

Since its inception in 1999, the Undergraduate Symposium has showcased thousands of undergraduate students’ research, creativity, service-learning and other scholarly activities. The annual symposium continues to celebrate the work of our talented students, highlighting their achievements for the campus and the broader community. The Symposium provides opportunities for students to display, perform, or discuss their work in a professional setting.

Students from across the university attend, as do faculty, staff, and members of the Madison community. You are strongly encouraged to invite your friends, mentor, and family.

The Undergraduate Symposium is sponsored by Brittingham Trust and the Office of the Provost, through the stewardship of the General Library System, Undergraduate Research Scholars Program, WISCIENCE, the Morgridge Center for Public Service, the Writing Center and the Wisconsin Union.
