University Scholars Symposium

The Center's signature event of the year, the University Scholars Symposium brings together University Scholars with their mentors and collaborators from other higher education and research institutions to discuss their research findings. It provides University Scholars the opportunity to present for critical examination their initial findings before refining them for further presentation and publication. Additionally, it serves as a shared public space for the university community to thoughtfully consider research topics within and across disciplines.
