Does summarizing your research, scholarly, and creative projects feel intimidating? Learn to be concise while preserving the most essential information about your project in this workshop.

We’ll cover how to write effective abstracts of research, scholarly, and creative undergraduate work across various fields and disciplines, from the Arts and Humanities to the Social Sciences and STEM fields. This hands-on session will teach strategies to write a professional abstract that appeals to an audience with varying levels of knowledge about your topic. Designed to support students applying to the UW-Madison Undergraduate Symposium, this workshop also helps students looking to summarize their work for other opportunities.

Participants will review examples of abstracts of undergraduate student work and have the chance to get feedback on their own.
