Research Conference

The Council for Graduate Students in Education (CGSE) is pleased to host the CGSE Spring Research Conference. This year's CGSE Spring Research Conference will be held on Thursday, March 24, 2016, in the Learning Research Development Center (LRDC) building (3939 O’Hara Street). The conference is an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience presenting their research through either a session or a poster, as well as fostering community across programs within the school.

Come and check out research presentations throughout the day between 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m., followed by a poster session and reception from 6-8 p.m.  Research presentations will be held on the 1st, 2nd, and 5th floors, and the poster session and reception will take place on the 9th floor.
