SLA Graduate Student Symposium
Each year since 2008 students from the UW-Madison SLA Program have joined with SLA students from other institutions to host the SLA Graduate Student Symposium. Student organizers invite keynote speakers, review presentation proposals, secure funding, and arrange all aspects of the two-day event. The Symposium is a wonderful chance for students to meet other scholars, young and more experienced, gain practice presenting before peers, and get feedback on their work and ideas. The 2020 Symposium was to be held on the University of Minnesota campus but was cancelled due to COVID-19. Visit the SLA Graduate Student Symposium page for more information about the 2021 Symposium (University of Iowa) and the 2022 Symposium (UW-Madison).
