The University of Toledo’s Graduate Student Association is accepting registration for its eighth annual Midwest Graduate Research Symposium.

The symposium will take place Saturday, March 25, in the Memorial Field House and the Thompson Student Union.

“We are very excited to host this premiere event as it brings together hundreds of graduate students from across the region and showcases student progress in a wide variety of fields,” said Jessica Sherman, Graduate Student Association vice president.

The event will feature a keynote address from the Northern Ohio’s Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate; several professional development workshops; an awards banquet; a poster show; and eight sessions of concurrent podium presentations where students will discuss their work.

“The Midwest Graduate Research Symposium is an excellent opportunity for students to network, work on professional developmental skills, and receive constructive feedback on their presentations,” Sherman said.

Registrations must be submitted by Saturday, March 4, online at https://graduatestudentassociationblog.wordpress.com. All participants will receive participation certificates and an invitation to the awards dinner following the symposium.

Several awards will be given out at the dinner, where the top three poster presentations and oral presentations will be recognized.
