Stander Symposium

Instead of learning from behind a desk, students are learning to be the expert.

The Stander Symposium is an annual celebration of academic excellence — and an alternate day of learning. Instead of regularly scheduled classes, students share their research, creative endeavors and academic accomplishments in a public forum.

The daylong celebration features a keynote speaker, poster sessions, hands-on activities, performances, art exhibits, oral presentations and highlights of capstone coursework.

In the Marianist education tradition, the symposium allows faculty, staff and students to come together as a "community of learners."
