Stander Symposium

Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium

On Wednesday, April 24, 2019, the University of Dayton will sponsor the annual Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium to recognize and celebrate academic excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. This annual event provides an opportunity for students from all disciplines to showcase their intellectual and artistic accomplishments. The Stander Symposium represents the Marianist tradition of education through community and is the principal campus-wide event in which faculty and students actualize our mission to be a "community of learners."

A day of student research, creativity, and discovery.
RESEARCH. The word conjures images of laboratories, microscopes and test tubes. Indeed, this is true for the University of Dayton. However, at our University founded by the Marianists in 1850, research means much more. It means discovery in the arts, humanities and the social sciences, as well as scholarship, community service, and developing new perspectives on the world around us. For over thirty years the University of Dayton has sponsored the annual Stander Symposium.
