The Fall 2020 Symposium: Online Friday, December 4th.
Projects will be loaded into online galleries for preview before the symposium. We've only had posters in the past, but this semester projects are only limited to formats that can be viewed online. Create a video; design a story map; or turn in .PDFs of a slide deck, poster, or report to share your research!
The Data to Policy Project Symposium brings students from all participating courses together to present their research to their peers, faculty, community members, and local government and agency officials. Students design professional research posters to illustrate their data analysis and policy recommendations. Teams share their work with an audience diverse in expertise and interests. Participating students have expressed that the symposium experience helps make the project more meaningful and relevant and has opened opportunities for jobs and internships.
