Registration open for student research showcase

The UWill Discover! conference will present the research, scholarship, and creative work of undergraduate and graduate students, March 18 to 21 in the CAW Student Centre.

Free registration is now available to members of the campus and broader communities.

Conference chair Phil Wernette says it is an excellent opportunity for students to share their work in an interdisciplinary context with faculty and their peers.

“It is an expression of the goals and aspirations of our University, to develop deeper and broader connections between teaching and research, between learning and the community, and between the classroom, the lab, and the working world,” he says.

Dr. Wernette says the event will bring together students, faculty, and staff across all university disciplines, along with regional business and community partners.

“Discovery can take many forms and varies from field to field,” he says. “Research, business pitches, prototypes, film production, music and drama performance, compositions, educational tools, scholarship, are all types of discovery.”
