Stander Symposium

Student Research so Impressive, the Entire University Comes to Explore It.

The Stander Symposium is an annual celebration of academic excellence – and an alternate day of learning. Instead of regularly scheduled classes, students share their research, creative endeavors and academic accomplishments in a public forum. 

The daylong celebration features a keynote speaker, poster sessions, hands-on activities, performances, art exhibits, oral presentations and highlights of capstone course work.

In the Marianist education tradition, the symposium allows faculty, staff and students to come together as a "community of learners."
