University of Montana Graduate Student Research Conference


The University of Montana Graduate Student Research Conference

Saturday April 12, 2014

The UM Graduate Student Research Conference brings together graduate students, community members, and faculty from a variety of disciplines. It offers graduate students an opportunity to gain valuable professional experience by presenting their work in a formal and intellectually supportive environment. It also fosters greater understanding among graduate students and faculty of the various disciplines' approaches to and methods of research.

The conference program includes oral presentations and poster presentations, a complimentary lunch with a panel discussion, and a post-session reception. This one-day conference takes place on the 3rd floor of the University Center and in the UC Commons on the 2nd floor of the University Center (see the schedule page for details).

This year's lunch panel focuses on:
"The Value of Graduate Education in the 21st Century"

This year's panelists include:
Jonathan Andrews (PhD candidate, Neuroscience)
Hillary Bard (MFA candidate, Theatre)
Dr. Anisa Goforth (Assistant Professor, Psychology)
Mark Triana (MA candidate, English Literature)
Stocky White (PhD candidate, Archeology)

Moderator: David Moore (Professor, English)

Please also join us for a reception in the UC Commons 4pm-6pm, following the final paper/poster session of the day. This is a great opportunity to socialize with fellow presenters and faculty

Student abstracts, posters and oral presentations are rated by faculty judges. Awards for the top-rated students will be announced the week following the conference.
