Each spring, graduate students in CLAS apply for competitive Summer Research Fellowships to support their research. We are proud to present the exceptional research conducted by this select group of students.
The Third Annual Graduate Research Symposium was held on Friday, November 12, 2021, in the Connelly Center. Oral presentations took place from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in the Cinema and followed the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) format. Poster presentations ran concurrently from 2:30 to 4 p.m. in the St. David's Room.
