Our annual Graduate Research Symposium has grown to be the largest annual research event on campus, with last year’s event showcasing nearly 300 individual presentations!  The event itself features oral and poster presentations by graduate students from a wide variety of disciplines.  Faculty and graduate students serve as judges for groups of presentations sharing similar themes or representing common areas of study.  The Symposium is concluded with an awards luncheon which features a keynote address and presentation of awards to exemplary presenters.

The Symposium offers benefits for students with any range of presentation experience and skills. For those with minimal experience, our event provides an opportunity to speak about research and receive interdisciplinary feedback. For those with more advanced skills, the Symposium offers a chance to earn a mark of distinction on their CVs and the chance to practice for future job interviews and research talks.
