Graduate Student Showcase

The Spring 2022 Graduate Student Showcase will take place on various dates, starting around April 27, 2022.

The Virtual Graduate Student Showcase has been developed so that graduate students can share their research, scholarship, and creative projects with faculty, fellow students, and the public.

The showcases are excellent opportunities for students to gain valuable presentation experience and feedback on their work, and for professionals, alumni, and the public to learn about various scholarship activities in the college.
