Students participation in Huskies Showcase will lead to an enriching and exciting experience and enhance their professional development. Students will have the opportunity to submit reflections that explain how their project exhibits one or more dimensions of Our Husky Compact. Please see Plan your Project for more information about the reflections and what will be required.
