The Student Technology, Arts & Research Symposium (STARS) starts today (4/17/19). This campus-wide, three-day program features all types of students (undergraduate, graduate, on campus, online) presenting the results of their research, scholarly, and creative activities.
The projects presented at STARS are the result of faculty-mentored hands-on experiential learning by students at UIS. Our students actively pursue study abroad, service learning, case studies, as well as research, art, and music performance opportunities. Such high-impact learning practices were recently recognized in the UIS Strategic Compass as one of our strategic pillars, Experience Engaged.
Skills developed during STARS, such as professionalism, communications, networking, and project management, prepare students for success in their future careers. Over 90% of UIS students are successful in obtaining employment or subsequent education within 12 months of graduation.
All events are free and open to the public. For more information and a complete schedule, go.uis.edu/stars
