Event description Accordion Closed
The Graduate Student Government Poster Symposium will highlight a variety of programs, papers, projects, and research studies of the graduate students of Northern Arizona University from all disciplines. The event provides an opportunity for students to enhance their presentation skills, introduce their research to those outside of their discipline, and represent their respective colleges.
Are you involved in an interesting research/project that you would like to showcase to graduate students, faculty members, and guests of NAU? Do you have a poster that you presented at a previous conference but have not had a chance to exhibit it at NAU?
Why not present your work at the GSG Poster Symposium? We all want to know the great projects that you have been working on!
This is a great opportunity to practice using your poster to talk about your research to small groups who are interested in the current research of NAU’s graduate students. In participating, you can take advantage of the crowd that will be in attendance to hear compelling and plainly spoken research ideas and results. In addition, the poster presenters will have the opportunity to receive feedback from faculty members, graduate students, and guests.
Please contact GSG@nau.edu for more information.
