A Showcase of Graduate Work

Each year the Graduate School hosts the Graduate Student Expo & Poster Forum (formerly known as the Graduate Poster Forum) to showcase graduate student research, scholarship and creative works. Typically, between 100 and 125 students from all disciplines participate in this adjudicated university-wide event with poster topics ranging from meditation as medication replacement to an analysis of the harmful effects associated with both the tobacco and the charcoal used while smoking hookah. On the Main Stage, presentations included a semi-classical Indian dance, two poems about the Bribri culture, and a look at the Tudor Revival in England.

All UC graduate students are encouraged to participate in the 2016 Graduate Student Expo & Poster Forum. Whether you want to get discipline-specific feedback on your research before you present nationally, beef up your CV, or share your art with the UC community, the Expo & Poster Forum is a great opportunity and it is right in your own back yard. (And it is free to register!)

The event is open to the university community, so bring your under/graduate classes on a tour of the posters or encourage your students to attend individually. Visitors will not only get firsthand knowledge of research and scholarship in action, but students may have an opportunity to explore graduate school options.

All posters will be available for viewing that day from 9 a.m. to noon, and Main Stage will run until 2 p.m. Maps of the posters and abstract books and programs for Main Stage will be available so you can target your viewing to specific disciplines. Poster abstracts and the Main Stage program will be accessible online here as the event approaches.
