Ramaley Research Celebration

Every spring semester Winona State University recognizes the efforts of our amazing student scholars and their faculty mentors by inviting these students to present at the Ramaley Research Celebration. The Ramaley Celebration is named for Judith Ramaley, the 14th president of Winona State University. Dr. Ramaley continued to teach during her tenure as president and she was an ardent supporter of undergraduate research as an integral part of the educational experience at WSU. Please note that for our purposes “research” is very broadly defined as “an inquiry or investigation that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline” (Council on Undergraduate Research). Therefore, we welcome the participation of students and faculty from all WSU Colleges and Departments.

2018 Celebration

The celebration, now in its 12th year, will be held Wednesday, April 11, 2018 from 1-5pm in East Hall, Kryzsko Commons.

Students interested in presenting research, performances, art, or other scholarly activities done in collaboration with WSU faculty are invited to participate in this event.  Abstracts describing their work should be submitted using the instructions provided on the Research Celebration page. This site includes information on abstract format and the link to submit your abstract. Consult with your faculty mentor on submissions.

All members of the WSU community are invited to attend and celebrate the scholarly and creative works of our students. We particularly encourage lower-level WSU students to come and get a peek at the type of projects you may choose to do while at WSU.

For the first time, this year the WSU Women In Science and Engineering (WISE) Club is co-sponsoring the event. For more information, visit to the resources page.
