The University of Toledo Graduate Student Association will host the 10th annual Midwest Graduate Research Symposium Saturday, April 6, in the Memorial Field House and Thompson Student Union.

Students will represent a variety of disciplines and compete for awards and monetary prizes at the symposium.

“This event invites more than 90 universities across the Midwest and surrounding areas, offering an opportunity for all graduate students in the region to have their work presented as seminar or poster presentations,” said Alisa Nammavong, president of The University of Toledo Graduate Student Association.

The symposium is open to all majors and is great for networking opportunities, according to Nammavong.

“I hope that with the symposium, attendees learn something new,” Nammavong said. “It is my personal belief that as researchers, we must connect with the communities we are supporting and directly or indirectly engaging.”

Charlene Gilbert, dean of the College of Arts and Letters, and professor of film, will give the keynote address at the event.

Sunday, March 10, is the deadline to register for free; go to the Graduate Student Association website.
