The 19th annual Showcase, held Wednesday, March 21, 2018, at Union South, again provided an opportunity for colleagues from across the UW-Madison campus to connect with each other, share best practices, and learn from each other’s successes. This year’s event featured 65 poster exhibits, 19 poster flash talks, four breakout sessions, and a special keynote presentation by Mark Guthier, Director of the Wisconsin Union.
