Source Update…

SOURCE, the Symposium On University Research and Creative Expression will take place on May 17, 2012, in the SURC and on dates to be announced at the University Centers.   The abstract submission website is now open!  Visit to learn more.  SOURCE is a university-wide forum that showcases all genres of scholarly work by CWU students, faculty, and staff.  

This year we have added a new fourth presentation category – creative expression works.  Creative expression works is a good option for presenters with projects that involve media that cannot be displayed in a two-dimensional format and may take many forms, including (but not limited to) 3D models, machines, devices, and/or visual art.   All forms of visual art are also welcome, including original painting, sculpture, photography, prints, textile arts, fashion designs, drawings, pottery, jewelry, metal, etc. For a description of all of the presentation types visit:

We are also happy to host the I4IE Business Plan Competition once again this year.  A total of $10,000 for business start-up funding is available for 2012. The 1st place winner will receive $5,000, the 2nd place winner will receive $3,000 and the 3rd place winner will receive $2,000.   For more information visit:
