5th Annual Graduate Research Forum; "Engagement: Community, Creativity, Connections"

The 5th Annual Graduate Student Research Forum is a one-day conference held annually at the University of Oregon to showcase research and creative expressions by graduate students in all of the UO’s graduate colleges and schools. The 2014 Grad Forum will be held on Friday, March 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the EMU.

This year’s forum will include over 170 graduate students representing over 50 disciplines from across campus. Throughout the day there will be over 20 sessions, including panel presentations, literary readings, dance, music and theatrical performances taking place. Many of these bridge graduate student research from varied fields around common themes.

In addition to the interdisciplinary sessions, over 100 students will participate in this year's new poster competition, which for the first time will offer $1,000 awards to winners in each of six categories. The awards may be used for a professional development opportunity of the winner’s choosing (e.g., attending a conference, purchasing research supplies, traveling to a job/internship interview).

These awards have been made possible by the generous support of our Grad Forum partners. Representatives from our partner companies, professionals from the community, faculty, staff, and administration will serve as judges to identify the top posters for each of the academic categories. 

All audience members are invited to vote in the People’s Choice Award competition, given to the poster presenter that receives the most audience votes.

The poster session will take place on March 7 at 12:00-1:30 pm in the EMU ballroom and also doubles as a reception with food and beverages provided.
