Day at the Stander
9 a.m. to 7 p.m., UD Campus Locations
For 30 years, the Stander Symposium has acted as an annual showcase where both undergraduate and  graduate students are invited to showcase their research, creative endeavors, and academic achievements. We celebrate the symposium as a day of research, creativity, and discovery by canceling all regularly scheduled courses and meetings - instead inviting the whole University to engage in conversation, learning and panel discussions-outside of the classroom.
