Graduate Student Research Day--April 2, 2019

Graduate Student Research Day (GSRD) is an event that is open to graduate students from every college on campus that provides them with the opportunity to present their research and network with graduate students and faculty from outside their discipline. Each year, a speaker is invited to give a talk on a theme selected by the members of OGAP that we believe is relevant to the personal and professional development of graduate students. This year’s theme is “Adaptation: Growing and developing in an ever more dynamic world” (please note that your research does not have to be related to this theme for you to present). 

Registration for GSRD is now closed!
