Works in Progress Symposium

The Works in Progress Symposium (WIPS) provides undergraduates with an opportunity to share their research with peers as well as professors. Undergraduates who have conducted original research, scholarly, or creative projects under the guidance of a faculty mentor are invited to submit an application to WIPS. This symposium also welcomes presentations by students who are just beginning projects, and affords students the opportunity to present the background, rationale, plans and preliminary results from a project that is ongoing, rather than complete.



Students give a fifteen minute oral presentation plus five minutes for questions in one of the following categories. 

  • Business
  • Education
  • Engineering
  • Liberal and Fine Arts
  • Life and Health Sciences
  • Math and Computer Sciences
  • Physical and Applied Sciences
  • Social and Behavorial Sciences
