The STEP Expo is the biannual showcase of STEP students who have completed Signature Projects in one of six categories: Creative & Artistic Endeavors, Education Abroad, Internship, Leadership, Service Learning, and Undergraduate Research. Attendees have the opportunity to interact with past STEP participants and learn about the range of transformational experiences they have pursued through the program. In addition to highlighting the accomplishments of STEP students, the event serves as a valuable idea generator for incoming participants. Interested students, faculty, staff, and community members are welcome to attend the event.
