Preparing for the 2011 Graduate School Scholarly Forum

leave a comment »

It’s January, and the first week of the Spring semester marks the “reorienting” of the graduate student body. Returning and new students alike are finding classes and labs, or polishing their syllabi for the classes they are preparing to teach. And while the semester may seem endless, time really does fly by.

In just 8 weeks, we’ll be hosting the 10th annual Graduate School Scholarly Forum – a two day event highlighting the current research and creative scholarship from our graduate community. In recent years, we have seen hundreds of graduate students and faculty present posters, oral presentation or participate on panels.

The Graduate School also features the Deans Lecture Series during the Scholarly Forum. We’re excited to present this year’s Series speakers, Dr Krista Lynn Minnotte (Sociology) and Dr Jianglong Zhang (Atmospheric Sciences).

The call is out now for abstracts which are due in just 3 weeks – then it’s on to scheduling and logistics for us, and writing or other preparations for the presenters.

If you will be presenting at the Scholarly Forum, best of luck and don’t miss the deadline! You find a link to the form on our home page. And why not share your preparation experience with us on the blog?
