The colloquium allows USI graduate students to share and discuss their current research within their discipline. Presentations can be in the form of panel discussions, performances, posters and digital posters.
Some graduate programs require students to present at a conference or seminar. The colloquium would be an excellent opportunity to fulfill that requirement.
Why should I participate?
- Allow peers to notice your research
- Professional development opportunity
- Potential collaboration opportunities across graduate programs
- Gather insightful comments that can aid in future research efforts
