Research Development

Research Week

 

Since 2008, the School of Graduate Studies and Research, the Office of Research Development, and the Department of Instructional Technology have collaborated to provide a vibrant forum for University-wide research. The event welcomes submissions from both faculty and students and has grown annually, developing from a single day's event into a week-long celebration.

UIW's research enterprise provides for the development of critical thinking skills, problem solving, interdisciplinary perspectives, and a social and moral orientation that informs the questions explored and their applications to the world in which we live. The research presented not only showcases disciplinary accomplishment but serves to illustrate UIW's commitment to academic excellence.

As we continue to expand and grow the Research Week events, we seek to develop a wholly representative celebration – beyond the poster presentation.  Please see additional submission categories below.
