Research Symposium honors graduate student and faculty work
Undergraduates invited to learn more
The College of Graduate Studies will host Monday, April 21, a research symposium featuring different works from students and faculty within the 26 graduate programs.
About 50 poster presentations from different programs are expected, said Dr. Susan Keith, dean of the College of Graduate Studies.
"The research symposium will be a poster presentation of research," Keith said. "It highlights the great research that our graduate students conduct. We also highlight the work our faculty does with the research. It gives them an opportunity to talk to other people about their projects."
Keith said the students and faculty are not limited to the research they conduct. The students' research is related to their respective departments.
Before changing the name, the research symposium used to be more like a banquet and formal occasion, Keith said.
"It used to be called College of Graduate Studies Award Banquet," she said. "It is more a come-and-go event now. We decided that we need to utilize our resources and time a little bit better, so we decided to move to this format to get a bigger response and interest."
Although the research is done by graduate students, Keith said undergraduates are encouraged to attend to learn more about graduate school.
"It is a three-pronged approach," she said. "We get to highlight our graduate students and their work and use this as a recruiting tool."
Keith said advisers from the different graduate departments will be at the symposium to answer any questions undergraduate students might have.
Along with the research symposium, there is an awards ceremony to recognize the most outstanding graduate student from each college, Keith said.
"We have a selection committee made up of graduate faculty, and nominations can be sent in from faculty if they feel they have a graduate student worthy of the honor," she said.
The College of Graduate Studies Research Symposium will be at the CJ Davidson Center from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
