Administrative History

Eastern Michigan University's Undergraduate Symposium is an annual showcase of undergraduate student academic excellence. Students present at the event under the mentorship of faculty sponsors. The Symposium features oral presentations and poster displays on diverse topics of research representing academic disciplines from across the University.

The first symposium was held in 1981, with funding from the Parents' Association and leadership from Ira M. Wheatley, then department head of History and Philosophy. 17 students sponsored by 19 faculty members represented nine departments of the College of Arts and Sciences. Later symposiums added luncheons, keynote speakers, and poster displays by students, and the Colleges of Education, Technology, Business, Health and Human Services have also added participants.
