The School of Graduate Studies is pleased to announce the 13th Annual Graduate Scholarly Forum, a two-day conference showcasing the cutting edge research and creative scholarship of UND's graduate community. Last year's event was the largest to date with more than 200 participants who presented their research through oral presentations, posters and panel sessions.
Dr Wayne Swisher, interim dean of the School of Graduate Studies said, "The Scholarly Forum has grown to be the largest gathering of our academic community on our campus. The depth and breadth of graduate research is evident both in the Forum's growth and the increasing number of interdisciplinary projects".
The Scholarly Forum is the ideal opportunity to discover the independent and collaborative research projects that engage our graduate community. It allows students to gain valuable presentation experience and feedback ahead of regional and national conferences, and for departments to gather and support their peers and colleagues. For undergraduates interested in an advanced education, the Forum provides a perfect environment to learn more about a research topic of interest and what is expected at the graduate level.
Next year's Scholarly Forum is set for Tuesday, March 11 and Wednesday March 12. The School of Graduate Studies is now calling for abstracts. If you would like to arrange a special session for your department or have questions about the event, please contact Susan Caraher.
