2014 URCE Symposium Online Application

The goal of the UW-Platteville Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (URCE) Symposium is to highlight the various student research and creative accomplishments completed in collaboration or under the supervision of a Faculty Mentor. Current UW-Platteville students from across campus are encouraged to apply.

Projects represent research or creative endeavors that go above and beyond the normal classroom requirements.

FAQ and Guidelines

Activities include: traditional research projects, independent studies, literary analyses, creative writing, original music or theatrical performances, and exhibitions of artwork.

The medium of presentation will vary depending on the project (e.g. poster presentation, oral presentation, or performance). Oral and performance presentations are limited to 30 minutes. 

Group presentations are allowed; however, an entire class of students does not facilitate the opportunity to provide a valuable and practical research experience.

Questions: Please contact the URCE Coordinator Jessica Sprenger Schulenburg at 342.1983 or urce@uwplatt.edu

*Students participating in the PACCE Program do not need to complete the URCE application.
