Doctoral Research Showcase

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 | 12-2 pm | Great Hall, Coffman Memorial Union

The road to the dissertation is long and often winding. Graduate students complete courses, lab work, and exams; they develop research questions and methodology; they review existing literature. They conduct interviews, surveys, and experiments; analyze results; and consider implications.

As they make their way down this road, graduate students transform from being those who absorb knowledge to those who produce it. They raise new issues, develop new approaches, and advance new ideas.

Cedar Creek Graduate Fellows Program

Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve (CCESR) is now accepting applications for our summer Graduate Fellows Program.

This program provides partial summer support for graduate students who are conducting thesis research at Cedar Creek to mentor undergraduate student researchers. Please share this announcement with any graduate students to whom this opportunity might be of interest.
