Graduate Student Research Day
The Organization for Graduate Student Advancement and Professional development (OGAP) hosts its hallmark event "Graduate Student Research Day" every year. Graduate Student Research Day is an opportunity for students to share and enhance their research with other graduate departments throughout campus, as well as gain insightful feedback from faculty and peers. These include, but are not limited to, science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), social-behavioral and economics (SBE) and the humanities. This event engages attendees in a competitive poster session, keynote and panel discussions and local industry for networking. Graduate Student Research Day is planned and organized by graduate students with the professional development goals of our peers in mind.
Three Minute Thesis
Three Minute Thesis (3MT®)--hosted by the Graduate School--celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students. Developed by The University of Queensland, the exercise cultivates students' academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Our organization helps out with advertising, and provides volunteers for the day of the event. For more information about the event itself, please visit the Graduate School's website.
Career Resource Center Graduate Student Series
Throughout the Spring and Fall semesters, OGAP--in collaboration with the Career Resource Center--assists with a variety of seminars to engage graduate students on topics that they likely wouldn't be exposed to in their graduate coursework and that would assist with their professional development and career goals. For information on upcoming seminars, please visit the CRC's "Events and Programs" page.
