Approximately 100 graduate students representing 30 disciplines participated in the 2013 Forum. The event program includes a one-page overview of the day-long event as well as abstracts from all panelists, roundtable discussants, poster presenters and exhibitors. Sessions begin at 9:00, 10:15, 1:45, and 3:15. The event's catered reception and interdisciplinary poster session-- complete with icecream sundae bar-- was held at noon (brief remarks by our dean and associate dean took place at 12:30). Students participated in one of four ways: presenting a paper as part of an interdisciplinary panel session organized by the Graduate School; holding an interdisciplinary panel session of of their own; participating in a poster session; and presenting a work of creative expression (exhibit, performance, etc.).


About the Research Forum

The first Graduate Student Research Forum was held in April 2010 in response to requests from graduate students for more opportunities for interdisciplinary intellectual exchange and networking. The Graduate School is committed to providing ongoing opportunities for our graduate students to both share some of the incredible intellectual work going on at the University, and have the chance to engage with their peers’ research. Interdisciplinary, cross-unit forums like this are an ideal setting for learning, research collaboration, and professional development.
