First held in February 1999, Symposium has grown into a wonderful University of Maine Farmington tradition. Each spring, the University community takes a day off from classes and normal routines to share in the exciting work of students.
“In showcasing their scholarly and creative projects through papers, performances, poster sessions, etc., we are honoring our most deeply felt values as a public liberal arts college-specifically, active and engaged learning, academic rigor, student‐faculty collaboration and service to promote the common good. I find it particularly exciting that Symposium provides an opportunity for everyone-from beginning students to seniors who are completing an exciting capstone project-to share their work in a public venue.”
