Student Impact Symposium

Student Impact Symposium

Tuesday March 20, 2018

Poster Exhibition: 12 p.m.-2:00 p.m.   TUC Atrium

Awards & Recognition: 2:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.   TUC Great Hall

The Student Impact Symposium is intended to provide our exemplary student groups/individuals with a platform to showcase their impact outside of the classroom. UC students demonstrate their passion, learning, and innovation through purposeful action/project completion every year. This year we want to capture that in a symposium which allows students to share their accomplishments with the UC community, but also potential employers, staff, and family. 

All community members are invited to attend the inaugural Student Impact Symposium! Engage with students as they showcase their impact outside of the classroom through projects and actionable ideas. Drop in during the poster exhibition and/or join us for presentations and awards. 

Each impact piece identifies with at least one of the Leadership & Engagement values: equity, inclusion, integrity, growth, leadership, and community. 


Applications are up!  All accepted participants will have a poster presentation about their impact piece guided by Rolfe et al's reflective model: What? So what? Now what? Selected participants will also formally present their impact piece to a community audience and the event will conclude with recognition and awards.

Impact pieces will be judged during the Poster Exhibition on the following criteria: display and creativity, innovation, learning, application, and future implications/impact to the community.
