Stander Symposium

Attend Stander Symposium 2022

The Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium is Wednesday, April 20, 2022.

Project abstracts have been published to eCommons and are open for browsing, and the 2022 symposium schedule is available below. There will be a Stander Information Desk in Kennedy Union Main Lobby from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Stander day as a centralized location for information.

Stander provides multiple opportunities to support undergraduate and graduate students (nearly 900 presenters sharing 374 projects), explore other disciplines and topics, and engage with our mission as a Catholic and Marianist University in a unique and powerful way. Plan to support student presenters and attend their sessions and events.

Undergraduate classes do not meet on the day of the symposium, allowing for participation from the entire campus community. Graduate/Doctoral classes 4:30 p.m. and after will meet as scheduled. Graduate classes (or seminars) that might meet before 4:30 are advised to use discretion in making decisions to ensure the needs of graduate students participating in the Stander Symposium are accommodated.

The default view of the schedule below is by time. However by clicking on "Columns" in the upper left you can select additional fields to view and filter schedule results. Click on the eCommons link to read the projects full abstract.

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 had the option of selecting one primary and one secondary goal that most closely align with the project they are presenting at Stander. Attendees can search projects in eCommons using the goals by typing it into the "search terms" box (example search: climate action).

About the Stander

The purpose of the Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium is to provide an annual campus-wide forum to showcase academic excellence at the University of Dayton.  It is designed to recognize student learning through faculty mentored undergraduate and graduate research, scholarship and artistic accomplishments representing all academic units at the University of Dayton.  

GOAL 1: Recognize and encourage student academic engagement by providing a community-wide forum for their research, scholarship and artistic achievements.

GOAL 2: Recognize and encourage faculty mentorship of students and their work. 

GOAL 3: Represent the Marianist tradition of education through community in which faculty, staff and students actualize our mission to be a “community of learners.”

2022 Stander Program Committee

The Stander Program Committee's responsibilities include disseminating information to the greater campus community to educate all faculty and staff about Stander; serve as a liaison between their unit and the committee in order to provide feedback and foster participation; answer questions and help shape the activities during the Symposium.

2022 Symposium Project Registration

Online registration for the 2022 Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium will be available on February 1, 2022 in Porches on the Stander Symposium page found in the top right menu under Campus. The deadline to register projects has been *extended* to Tuesday, March 22, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.

The 2022 Stander Symposium will be held in-person on Wednesday, April 20 from 9a-4:30p with session occurring concurrently in multiple buildings across campus. We will host four 75 minute poster sessions in Kennedy Union Ballroom. The Stander will schedule presentations following the registration deadline and notify presenters of their assigned location and time. A full schedule will be published on the website in April 2022.

Poster: On the day of the Symposium you will be given a 48” (length) x 36” (height) presentation board and push pins. Presenters should remain by their poster for the duration of the 75 minute session to discuss their work.

Oral Presentation: Each student is given a 20 minute time slot for their presentation. This allows 15 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions. For group projects, please indicate how many 20 minute time slots you require. 

Porch Project: Present on your house porch between 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. EDT; you pick the time on April 20 and provide us with your address. Don't have a porch? We'll help you adopt one. Masks and physical distancing are required. You present from your porch, the audience watches from the lawn. 

Panel Discussion: A panel is a group of 3-4 presenters (or more) with a moderator on a shared topic and represent a variety of perspectives. Panels work best when the presenters interact with one another and the audience, and organized around a series of questions. We recommend 20-30 minutes for live panel discussions.

Visual Arts Display and Performance: Displays can be either physical or digital, and performances can be live or on video. Consider including a brief discussion by the presenters to engage the audience. After you have registered, you will be contacted to discuss your specific space and equipment requirements.

Other Presentation Format (i.e. competitions, forums, interactive sessions, workshops, etc.) should be proposed to the Stander Coordinator as soon as possible.
