Recognition of Faculty/Staff Scholarship & Creative Achievements

Scholarship and Creative Achievement event graphic

The scholarship and creative achievements accomplished by UW-Whitewater's faculty and staff during the previous academic year are honored annually at a reception and exhibit, sponsored by the Chancellor, the Provost, University Libraries, Office of Research & Sponsored Programs and Crossman Gallery. The purpose of the event is twofold:


  • to promote a free exchange of ideas;
  • to encourage and stimulate further research and creative activity.


The 33rd annual Scholarship & Creative Achievement Exhibition will take place virtually from Tuesday, November 10, 2020 through Monday, November 16, 2020. Recognition is for achievements accomplished between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. Questions? Please contact: Barbara Bren at 472-5521.
