This year’s Scholars Week will take place virtually, from May 18 through May 22, in the form of an online poster session — the Scholars Showcase — as a continuation of Western Washington University’s 20-year tradition of celebrating students’ scholarly pursuits with a dedicated event each spring.
Scholars Week Online is live!
You are invited to view and comment upon presentations, as well as pose questions for presenters, by visiting the online Scholars Showcase at wwu2.sharepoint.com/sites/ScholarsWeek2020.
In compliance with FERPA, visitors from Western’s community will need to be signed into their @wwu.edu Microsoft Office accounts. Student presenters wishing to share their work externally will be able to individually share a link to their specific poster page.
In response to enthusiastic support from students, faculty and staff at Western, the Scholars Week Committee, with help of WWU ATUS staff and IT specialists, has created an online venue to present outstanding graduate and undergraduate scholarship. This online forum replaces previously scheduled on-campus Scholars Week events that were cancelled due to the Coronavirus.
Traditionally, Western’s Scholars Week has included a week-long celebration of student research and creative activities. Undergraduates and graduates showcase their work in collaboration with faculty mentors, highlighting the significance of student scholarship. This includes research still in progress as well as creative work and performance. During this time when our ability to work in the same physical space is no longer possible, or when some research has had to be halted altogether, virtual Scholars Week 2020 offers a means of recognizing, valuing and commending Western students’ and faculty perseverance and dedication to academic achievement.
This year, May 18 – 22 has been designated as Scholars Week 2020.
Thank you for helping us celebrate and showcase the work of WWU’s talented and hard-working students. One additional way to support Scholars Week is with a donation made here. Your gift will help support various Scholars Week activities. We appreciate your generosity!
