The Arthur Olsen Student Research Symposium is a gathering that fosters and celebrates student research at the university. The structure of the symposium follows that of a traditional academic conference, and Augustana students from all disciplines are invited and encouraged to present their original research at this forum. The symposium provides the campus and surrounding community an opportunity to see and appreciate the creativity, hard work and ingenuity of its students.
This year's symposium will take place on Saturday, April 15, at the Froiland Science Complex.
In lieu of a keynote address, this year’s symposium will host a panel discussion on sustainability and food insecurity featuring various voices from across Augustana’s campus, including Director of Environmental Studies and Sustainability Dr. David O’Hara, Professor of Biology and Plant Pathologist Dr. Sally Mallowa, Professor of Biology and Faculty Advisor of Augie Green Dr. Steven Matzner and Professor of Business and Augustana Call for Code Faculty Representative Matthew Willard.
The Arthur Olsen Student Research Symposium is supported by the Augustana Student Association (ASA), Office of Academic Affairs, Civitas Honors Program, Mikkelsen Library and Union Board of Governors (UBG).
