Academic Excellence Showcase

Showcase Overview

On Thursday of the ninth week of every spring term, Western Oregon University celebrates student academic excellence. The entire day is dedicated to the presentation of student scholarly activities, including original research, artwork, performances, and upper-division course projects, presentations, and papers. The primary objectives of the Showcase are to provide an opportunity for presenters, giving them experience that will be useful in furthering their education and careers, and to expose the entire student body to the breadth and importance of the scholarship that is being conducted across campus. In a typical year about 400 presentations are given on this day and students, faculty and staff across campus turn out in large numbers to attend the events.

The showcase is organized by the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi and the Program for Undergraduate Research Experiences (PURE). To demonstrate the importance of student scholarly pursuits at Western, faculty are encouraged to cancel their classes, while at the same time requiring students to attend their peers' presentations. An Academic Excellence Showcase Planning Committee, including faculty and staff from across campus, and chaired by the PURE Coordinator, organizes this event. In order to ensure the highest level of participation the Showcase Planning Committee has enlisted faculty volunteers, representing academic disciplines across campus, to serve as Session Chairs. Please consider joining us this year in our celebration of student scholarly excellence!

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
