UW System touts undergraduate research
Undergraduate research takes center stage across the UW System this month, as UW institutions work to boost interest in undergraduate research. A national conference in La Crosse this past weekend attracted participants from across the country. On Wednesday, students from every UW campus will convene in Madison for the 10th annual Posters in the Rotunda event, where they will display their research projects in the Capitol Rotunda. Later this month, a La Crosse student will represent Wisconsin at a similar national event in the U.S. Capitol. UW System President Kevin P. Reilly is quoted regarding undergraduate research and why it is a high-impact educational practice that provides students with opportunities both in and outside the classroom. See the news release.
