About the Symposium

The Arthur Olsen Student Research Symposium is a gathering that fosters and celebrates student research at the university. The structure of the Symposium follows that of a traditional academic conference, and Augustana students from all disciplines are invited and encouraged to present their original research in this forum. 

In 2015, the family of Dr. Arthur Olsen made an endowed gift to support the Augustana Symposium and student research. In honor of that gift and in tribute to Dr. Olsen's many contributions to the campus community and student research, the Augustana Symposium was renamed the Arthur Olsen Student Research Symposium.

The Arthur Olsen Student Research Symposium is supported by the Office of Academic AffairsCivitasMikkelsen Library and UBG.
