Graduate Student Presenting Research at Symposium

The Graduate Student Research Symposium (GSRS) is a celebration presenting graduate students' research endeavors. Approximately 50 graduate students will be selected as presenting authors to represent the graduate disciplines from the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology, the Center for Education, the Center for Human Sexuality Studies, the Institute for Physical Therapy Education, the Center for Social Work Education, the Institute for Occupational Therapy Education, and the School of Nursing. Within the 50 selected authors, a featured presenter is selected to give a 30-minute presentation to close-out the event.

The mission of the GSRS is to create an appreciation for interdisciplinary collaboration, highlight diverse research topics and methodologies, and generate awareness about research promoting social justice, diversity, and inclusion.  

The objectives of the GSRS are to:  

  • Select up to 50 graduate students from from the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology, the Center for Education, the Center for Human Sexuality Studies, the Institute for Physical Therapy Education, the Center for Social Work Education, the Institute for Occupational Therapy Education, and the School of Nursing, including online students, whose research aligns with the mission of the GSRS.  

  • Structure a platform that exposes students to formal presentations and enhances their presentation skills.   

  • Display a variety of research methods (i.e., thesis, policy briefs, dissertations, etc.).  

  • Provide opportunities for engagement and networking amongst presenting authors and attendees. 

Once graduate students are selected as presenting authors by a committee of faculty, students will be guided in creating a poster that will be displayed and housed within the Wolfgram Memorial Library Digital Collections website for online viewing beginning on Monday, April 12, 2021. This website is accessible to the public and will not need further access to view posters. 

Live Zoom sessions will be held on Tuesday, April 20, 2021, from 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm for authors to present key findings from their research and participate in an open discussion. The featured author will close the event with a 30-minute presentation including an open discussion.
