From its inception, The Waterborne Symposium has been organized and executed by faculty, staff, and students of the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials (formerly the Department of Polymer Science) at The University of Southern Mississippi. Proceeds from the Symposium are very important to USM and the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials. Funds received are used for various elements of academic program development, including graduate student stipends, junior faculty development, equipment acquisition and maintenance, and especially, scholarships for undergraduate students majoring in Polymer Science and Polymer Science & Engineering, most of whom enter the coatings or related polymer industries upon graduation. These scholarships are critical to the university’s efforts to recruit the highest achieving students into our program
To administer the preeminent educational/technical forum in the United States directed to the science and technology of surface coatings and to provide revenue to support and advance the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials at The University of Southern Mississippi.
