Academic Excellence Showcase

Academic Excellence Showcase is an annual conference celebrating the accomplishments of Western Oregon University students.

Showcase is Western’s flagship conference. Every year we curate the most outstanding products of WOU student academic engagement, across the full breadth of the curriculum, into a single day of presentations. Showcase is a production of WOU's Program for Undergraduate Research Experience. Hundreds of visitors attend the conference, making Showcase an opportunity to share the outstanding caliber of work being accomplished though the educational collaboration of faculty, staff and students here at Western Oregon University. 


AES 2019 Theme: The interrelationship of the Arts and Sciences

PURE is excited to engage the campus across disciplines in exciting and challenging ways with the 2019 theme. Using STEAM as the focus of the plenary session has the potential to engage the campus across disciplines in exciting and challenging ways. We are looking forward to a stimulating plenary event born out of the creative synergy of the arts and sciences.
