  • Theme of the Day: RESEARCH
  • Date: OCTOBER 27th, 2015 (Tuesday)
  • Location: Reitz Union Grand Ballroom

Graduate Student Research Day is an annual event featuring research from graduate students in all disciplines.  It features posters from hundreds of students, panel discussion, and professional development workshops.

The event is open to all graduate students. We encourage undergraduate students participating in research activities to attend the event. The event is also open to all postdoctoral fellows/associates, researchers and faculty.

This year’s Graduate Student Research Day is themed around RESEARCH.


Graduate Student Research Day will feature a Poster Contest with monetary awards given to the highest-scoring posters. A team of faculty, staff, community members, and graduate students will judge the posters during the Poster Session on October 27th, 2015. Participation in the poster contest is optional; you may submit an abstract for a poster without entering the contest.

President Fuchs will be speaking during the lunchtime session on his vision to establish UF as a national leader and a voice for higher education.

Our afternoon panel, “What I Wish I Knew,” will feature senior doctoral students across various disciplines at UF. These advanced students will be able to talk about their earlier years of graduate school, how they maintained a positive work/life balance, the resources they found helpful and available to them, among other pertinent topics.
