Whitman Undergraduate Conference

Tuesday, April 11, 2023

Welcome to the 25th annual Whitman Undergraduate Conference, a celebration of the research, scholarship, and creativity of Whitman students.

The conference will be held in person only this year. Panel sessions will take place in various venues across Whitman’s campus, and a poster session will be held in the lobby at Cordiner Hall. Between sessions, enjoy the musical creativity and genius of Whitman students performing from the classical and jazz repertoires.

Research conferences that span disciplines and occupy a full day are rare events, especially at small colleges. The Whitman Undergraduate Conference is a testament to the value of liberal arts learning and a showcase of original work sparked by course study, senior theses, faculty-student research, independent projects, fellowships, internships and study abroad.

The conference is organized by the Fellowships and Grants team at the Career and Community Engagement Center. For more information, contact Dr. Jess Hernandez, Chair of the Whitman Undergraduate Conference Committee and Director for Fellowships and Grants, at hernand2@whitman.edu or Jenny Stratton, Administrative Assistant for Fellowships and Grants, at strattjm@whitman.edu.

The 2023 conference will be an in-person-only event. All are welcome to attend who are in abidance with Whitman College’s current COVID-19 protocols.

Panel presentations will not be live-streamed or recorded.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be available for all panel presentations.

If you have questions about accessibility or need accommodations to experience the conference, please contact Jess Hernandez or Jenny Stratton (see email addresses above).

Conference Schedule

The day’s events weave together oral panel presentations, a poster session and musical interludes to create an engaging program that celebrates Whitman student learning. 

The general schedule will be released by mid-March 2023.
