Dear KRSS Graduate Students,
We highly encourage you to present your research at the 2015 Graduate Student Research Colloquium.
The Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Board will be hosting this year’s Graduate Student Research Colloquium on Friday, March 6th from [10:00 am to 3:00 pm]. The colloquium provides graduate students with an opportunity to present their research in a conference setting. Students receive feedback from faculty and other graduate students in attendance and have an opportunity to practice their presentation skills. Being selected to take part in the Graduate Student Research Colloquium makes a wonderful entry in students’ resumes’. All graduate students in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences are invited to submit abstracts to be considered for oral presentations and poster sessions at this year’s colloquium.
Abstract submissions need to be for original research being conducted in conjunction with graduate studies. A maximum of 2 submissions may be made per student. If your presentation involves data from human subjects, you will need to obtain IRB approval. Contact the professor guiding your research for assistance with this.
Members of the Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Board will be responsible for a “blind-review” of abstract submissions for the Spring Research Colloquium. One outstanding abstract from each of the eight academic departments in the College Education, Health, and Human Sciences will be selected for an oral presentation. Students selected to make oral presentations will receive a $500 professional development award from the Dean, and the opportunity to present your research to the Dean’s Board of Advisors.* Additional abstracts will be selected for the two poster sessions which will be held during the research colloquium. Abstracts should be a maximum of 350 words and submitted electronically by 5:00 PM on Friday, February 6, 2015. Please follow the following link to complete the online submission process: http://goo.gl/forms/QMByx7NxPP.

*If more than one author is on an abstract selected for an oral presentation, the award will be divided equally among the authors.
