Sister Seraphim Gibbons Undergraduate Symposium

2021 Sister Seraphim Gibbons Undergraduate Symposium

Welcome to the 2021 Sister Seraphim Gibbons Undergraduate Symposium!

This year, to comply with social distancing guidelines due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are celebrating Undergraduate Research and Creative Inquiry with a virtual symposium.

This event celebrates the work of our students in the spirit of the St. Catherine value of Academic Excellence: We embrace a culture of learning that drives the students, faculty, and staff to discover, acquire, and apply knowledge.

We are inspired by the pioneering spirit and embodied by Sister Seraphim Gibbons:

"When something needed to be done, Sister Seraphim rolled up her sleeves and got right to it.”
– Karen Sutherland, former assistant professor of mathematics

Thank you to this year’s dedicated students and faculty for “rolling up your sleeves” and sharing your incredible work with us.

Visit the Symposium and celebrate the scholarly accomplishments of our students.

If you have a stkate.edu email address, you will be able to ask questions and provide feedback on student work — to do so you just need to create an account. We encourage you to leave comments, keeping in mind our commitment to inclusion, respect, and intellectual honesty.
