Record number of graduate students to present posters at Research and the State

Submitted by Michael Sellman

K-State students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the annual Research and the State graduate student poster forum on Tuesday, Oct. 24. Posters will be on display from 10 a.m. to noon and 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the K-State Student Union courtyard. 

Seventy-nine graduate students are registered for this year's Research and the State forum, which is a 53% increase from last year's participation. Seven colleges and 27 programs will be represented.

During the forum, graduate students will present posters explaining their research or scholarly work with the K-State community. Presenters will also discuss the significance of their work for the state of Kansas. This event is an opportunity to learn about the diverse work being conducted by K-State graduate students.

Ten presenters will be selected to represent K-State at the annual Capitol Graduate Research Summit, which will take place on March 21, 2024, at the State Capitol Building in Topeka. K-State graduate students will present their posters alongside graduate students from other Kansas Regents institutions. Students will share their work with state legislators and the public.

Faculty, staff and postdocs are invited to serve as poster judges for Research and the State. Judges serve an important role in this event. They not only select the winning presentations, but they also give crucial feedback to those presenting their work to the public. If you are interested in serving as a poster judge, please complete a brief volunteer form to express your interest.
