On Thursday, May 26, 2016, Western Oregon University will celebrate student academic achievement with a day-long event, the Academic Excellence Showcase. The Showcase encourages students to demonstrate their research and scholarship, and allows the campus community to experience the varied scholarly and creative interests of our students. The day is dedicated to the presentation of student scholarly activities, including original research papers, projects, artwork, performances, and upper-division course projects, presentations, and papers. These presentations are from a range of disciplines throughout the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Education, but they all celebrate the pursuit of learning and knowledge.
The primary objective of the Showcase is to provide an opportunity for student presenters, giving them experience that will be useful in furthering their education and careers. In addition, the Showcase exposes the student body to the breadth and importance of campus scholarship. The showcase is organized by the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi and the Program for Undergraduate Research Experiences (PURE).
The 2016 Academic Excellence Showcase Proceedings will be available in mid-May and will be available as a PDF file or through the online schedule using the link below.
