The Undergraduate Studies (UGS) Student Showcase is AULA’s celebration of exceptional undergraduate student work. The showcase is a chance to celebrate and honor students’ exemplary work over the course of the academic year. Featured works include everything from academic posters and audiovisual works, to art, course portfolios, and oral presentations.
“The UGS Showcase features the most outstanding examples of academic work done by our undergraduate students, nominated by program faculty,” says Rosa Garza-Mourino, AULA’s director for External Partnerships, faculty, and Showcase organizer. “Students are nominated for projects that foster social justice, engage global citizenship, and utilize critical thinking skills.”
The projects cover a wide range of disciplines, themes, and intellectual traditions, such as the latest developments in Addiction Studies, Business and Social Entrepreneurship,Creative Writing, Psychology, Queer Studies, Urban Studies, and in-depth explorations of Liberal Studies.
Hosted in tandem with the Undergraduate Studies Open House, the Showcase is an inspiring collaborative effort, where prospective students and community partners can see amazing live presentations, art installations, and academic posters, as well as in-depth explorations of Liberal Studies and Applied Studies. The 11th Annual Undergraduate Student Showcase was held on May 20th.
