On-Campus Undergraduate Conferences and Symposiums

Every year Marquette colleges and departments host conferences for their undergraduate students to display their research and creative activity. 

Presenting your research is one of the most important parts of scholarly research. At conferences, you can share your research as well as learn from others' work in ways that might inform your own studies or simply offer you interesting conversation and networking. Check out below some of the undergraduate conferences/symposiums that Marquette has to offer undergraduate students throughout the year.
