Student Research Projects Accepted for Next Symposium

MILWAUKEE, WI -  Wisconsin Lutheran College traditionally hosts an Undergraduate Research Symposium each April. At the event, undergraduate students present papers, research projects, or artistic projects completed under the direction of a faculty member, professional researcher, or graduate student as an extension of their WLC academic experience. 

WLC's 20th annual event, scheduled for April 25, 2020, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Students were still invited to submit their paper or project. 

Those who were accepted to the 2020 Undergraduate Research Symposium are listed below, along with their research topics and faculty sponsor. They all have been invited to present at the 2021 event. Congratulations, students!
