Research Presentations

Present your research and celebrate your creative achievement with fellow Warriors.

Doing research is one thing, but articulating your methodology and results is another. 

It’s important that you gain practice in explaining your research to different audiences before you graduate, so you’re a well-rounded researcher and communicator. 

That’s why WSU recognizes the efforts of our amazing student scholars every year through various presentation opportunities.

Present Beyond WSU

Can’t get enough of presenting your work? Don’t worry. There’s plenty more where that came from.

Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) promotes undergraduate research and creative scholarship for a broad range of fields of study. 

Winona State University is an institutional member of CUR. 

Celebrate our Minnesota State system students and faculty as leaders in undergraduate research at the annual Minnesota State Undergraduate Scholars Conference. 

Showcase a poster-, oral-, artistic-, or gallery-style presentation alongside your faculty mentor.  

This year’s conference will take place as a hybrid event with both in-person and virtual activities on April 28-29. 

Registration is required. 

Join other Minnesota State system undergraduates at Posters at St. Paul to present your research, scholarly works, and creative activity at the Minnesota State Capitol Rotunda in the Spring. 

You could be one of 5 presenters to represent Winona State at this event.

Present your undergraduate research and creative inquiry at the Seven Rivers Undergraduate Research Symposium. 

This is a regional conference hosted by Viterbo University. 

The purpose of Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) is to serve as a platform for female students enrolled in the College of Science and Engineering and/or the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at WSU.  

One avenue to achieve these objectives is by showcasing research done at Winona State University by participating in various research symposiums, providing opportunities to network with career professionals, and collaborate with other WSU student organizations.
