Written by Maureen Brakke

MONMOUTH, Ore. The Western Oregon University Program for Undergraduate Research Experiences (PURE) is proud to announce that its annual Academic Excellence Showcase will occur in person on Thursday, May 30. The showcase allows Western undergraduate students to share their research with university faculty, staff, students, and the general public. 

Students from all disciplines are eligible to present at the event and work with a faculty mentor who helps them prepare their research for public presentation. Much of the research is done under the direct supervision of Western faculty members and represents the very best of collaborative research across a diverse array of disciplines. “We are very excited to show off the best thinking and thinkers that Western Oregon University has to offer,” says Maren Anderson, director of PURE.

The Academic Excellence Showcase takes place all day across the campus of Western Oregon University. The event features student panels, poster presentations, fine arts performances, a presentation of awards, and plenary speakers. It is free for all members of the university community and the general public. Learn more or contact pure@wou.edu for more information.
