Grad Forum Countdown: 3 Weeks Away!

Don’t miss this year’s Graduate Student Research Forum which offers expanded awards, competitive panel sessions, a new location, and lots of food. The Grad Forum, held at the Ford Alumni Center, will showcase the contributions of graduate students from across campus whose research and creative expressions highlight the scholarly and artistic strengths of the University of Oregon.

All UO students, faculty and community members are encouraged to attend the Grad Forum on Friday, February 20th starting at 10:00 am to learn more about the great work being done on campus.

The 6th annual Grad Forum is organized around four different themes:

  • Science and the Social Good;
  • Academy, Race and (In)Equality: Bridging Research and Practice;
  • Human Rights, Development, and Sustainability;
  • Imaginative Design, Art, and Performance.

The themes highlight the significance of research, art and scholarship in the humanities, social sciences, sciences, and professions.

Below is a complete agenda of panels and roundtables scheduled for this year's forum. For a broad overview of graduate student research, be sure to stop by the Poster Session and Reception from 2:00pm to 4:00pm in the Ford Alumni Center ballroom. The Graduate Student Association and Women in Graduate Science will be sponsoring a post-event reception at The Barn Light.
