‘Posters in the Rotunda’ – intended to highlight the extent, quality, and value of undergraduate involvement in faculty-guided research projects. Students and faculty from all UW schools will have the opportunity to share their research findings with Wisconsin legislators in the Capitol Rotunda, highlighting the importance of undergraduate research and education support at the state and national levels.

Poster & Presentation Information

Poster Specifics: The PITR Coordinator will contact selected presenters. Presenters will need to compose a poster to be placed on an easel for viewing. Students will receive assistance in creating their poster or adapting it for the session in Madison. Poster printing costs will be covered and easels will be provided.

Eligible Work: An eligible presentation will report, perform, or represent the outcome of substantial work by a student or group of students. While the project may have its origin in an assignment for a class, the presentation should show it has been developed above and beyond a class requirement. It is a paper, artifact, or performance that can truly be called a creative achievement.

Abstract Requirement: Each poster presentation requires an abstract. An abstract is a summary of the project and should reflect the professional format normally associated with scholarly work in its discipline (e.g., an abstract of an artistic performance may be similar to the program notes that typically accompany such a performance; science abstracts typically include background information, methods, results, and a brief discussion).

Interdisciplinary presentations are especially encouraged!

If you are interested in participating but aren’t sure, contact the Office of Grants & Research, we will be happy to talk you through your research, poster, or the event with you! Presenting at the Posters in the Rotunda (PITR) symposium is an excellent way to share what you know or what you’ve learned in your field of research. It’s also a great way to meet new people from the other UW campuses. So don’t wait – participate!
