2018 Provost's Student Research Fall Forum


Friday, November 9, 2018

University Union, Redwood Room

9:00 am - 2:30 pm 


The Provost’s Student Research Fall Forum is co-sponsored by the Student Research Center, the Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development, Undergraduate Studies, Graduate Studies and Academic Technology Center. Student participants get a chance to enhance their communication skills, independent thinking, creativity, problem solving, and professional and academic credentials to support applications for scholarships, awards, career employment and entry into graduate and professional schools.

At the Fall Forum, student participants have the opportunity to gain speaking and presentation experience without being judged, and receive feedback on their work and presentation styles. This event also serves as practice for the Student Research Spring Symposium (held every March).
