2017 Graduate Student Research Colloquium – Call for proposals

The Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Board will be hosting this year’s Graduate Student Research Colloquium on Friday, March 3, 2017. 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 on student résumés. All graduate students in the college 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 two submissions may be made per student.If your presentation involved 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 of 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.* Additional abstracts will be selected for the poster session which will be held during the research colloquium.

Abstracts need to include:
1.      Student’s name
2.      Student’s academic department
3.      Student’s UT e-mail address
4.      Title of research project
5.      Purpose (i.e. class project, IRB approved research project, etc.)

Abstracts should be a maximum of 350 words and submitted electronically by 5:00 P.M. on Wednesday, February 1, 2017. Please submit electronically via this submission process.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jamia Stokes, Jada Russell, or your departmental representative from the attached list.

This is a great opportunity to showcase the diverse research taking place in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences. The schedule from 2016 is linked below.
