Academic Excellence Showcase

Call for presentations

Phi Kappa Phi (the honor society) and the Program for Undergraduate Research Experiences (PURE) are partnering in 2014 in order to offer the Academic Excellence Showcase.

On May 28th, 2015, Western Oregon University will celebrate student academic excellence. The entire day will be dedicated to the presentation of student scholarly activities, including original research papers, projects, artwork, performances, and upper-division course projects, presentations, and papers. The showcase will again be 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, the Faculty Senate is encouraging the faculty to cancel their classes, while at the same time requiring students to attend their peers' presentations. 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.

We are hopeful that you will encourage your students to participate in this event.
