Research and scholarly work takes place by students, faculty and staff at UW-Superior every day, but on Wednesday that academic work was celebrated. The first Campus Celebration of Scholarship highlighted the work of over 70 scholars from 16 departments sharing their initiatives.

Over 24 posters were on display featuring various research projects and creative activity and the four UW-Superior research centers were also showcased:

· GREAT LAKES MARITIME RESEARCH INSTITUTE (GLMRI)

· LAKE SUPERIOR NATIONAL ESTUARINE RESEARCH RESERVE (LSNERR)

· LAKE SUPERIOR RESEARCH INSTITUTE (LSRI)

· TRANSPORATION & LOGISTICS RESEARCH CENTER (TLRC)


The program started with opening remarks from Chancellor Renee Wachter, Provost Faith Hensrud and Dr. Maria Cuzzo, director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at UW-Superior.

Dr. Cuzzo was excited to showcase the work being done by the campus community. "We're honoring the members of our community that generate original, creative, synthesis and scholarship of teaching and learning work." She is also a professor in the Legal Studies department and mock trials head coach. She said, "We're very proud to showcase the large amount of work that happens every day on the campus."

Chancellor Renee Wachter was impressed with the work that takes place on campus each and every day. "I believe strongly that scholarship really is the intellectual core of an institution, and the neat thing about it is that it appears in many forms. From plays to pottery, from books to research monographs, but regardless of its form I think today more than ever we understand that scholarship is a pivotal activity on the campus."

Wachter added, "We understand that teaching, research and service are not isolated activities, but unified and integrated in support of learning."

All members of the UW-Superior campus were invited along with the community to view the displays and interact and learn more about the research taking place at UW-Superior. Provost Faith Hensrud was proud of the commitment by the students, faculty and staff, "As a teaching institution we value both the teaching aspect and the creative and scholarly activity that you are able to put forward with this heavy teaching agenda."

Some of the programs that feature undergraduate research work includes: Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship, (SURF); First year Seminars (FYS); Senior Year Experience, (SYE); Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities (URSCA); Academic Service-learning (AS-L) and Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC).
