Stander Symposium

Stander Symposium 2021

The Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium will be Thursday, April 22, 2021.

In 2020 the Stander Symposium was online, live, and on demand. For 2021 we have kept the 2020 virtual format options (live and on demand) and added porch projects as an in-person option. Visitors can browse and download projects from a gallery in eCommons and either join live presentations through virtual conferencing links and porch addresses or, watch recorded presentations on demand. 

Students, faculty and staff can register Symposium projects on the Stander Symposium page in Porches. The deadline to register is Tuesday, March 30, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.

Presentation formats include poster, oral presentation, panel discussion, visual arts display, and performance. You can also propose any other format that helps display student scholarship or creative endeavors. Full descriptions of all project formats are available on the Stander registration page. Questions about presentation formats should be submitted to the Stander Coordinator, Andrea Wade (, no later than Tuesday, March 30.

We use the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as tags to help Symposium attendees search the schedule for sessions of interest and to offer an opportunity for presenters to make connections around common goals. Registrants have the option of selecting one primary and one secondary goal that most closely align with the project they are presenting at Stander.

University of Dayton faculty and staff mentor and support outstanding student work, and we encourage you to advise students to present at the Stander Symposium. Plan to support student presenters and attend their sessions and events on Thursday, April 22. Classes do not meet on the day of the symposium, allowing for participation from the entire campus community. 

Each year the University of Dayton recognizes undergraduate and graduate student research, creativity, and discovery during the Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium. Named in honor of UD's former Provost and Professor of Mathematics, Brother Joseph W. Stander, S.M., the Symposium stands as an ongoing tribute to him and all who carry on the Marianist tradition of education through community.

Stander 2021 Live, Online and On Demand in eCommons

eCommons, a service of the University Libraries, will serve as the Stander event and content platform. eCommons is a permanent multimedia archive of UD's continuous pursuit of transformative education and world-changing research. Recorded presentations will be available on April 22, along with PDFs of posters and presentation slides. Any live sessions happening on April 22 will be listed online with their URLs or porch address for attendees to join.
