Graduate students to present work at Research and the State poster session today
The Graduate Student Council will host the 2017 Research and the State graduate student poster session from 1-3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, in the K-State Student Union courtyard. The forum is free and open to the public.
Approximately 64 K-State graduate students representing five academic colleges and more than 25 academic disciplines will present their research or scholarly work to the K-State community and will discuss the implication their research has for important state-related issues.
The top 10 presenters will be selected by K-State faculty judges to present their research posters at the Capitol Graduate Research Summit on March 10, 2018, at the State Capitol Building in Topeka. The top presenters will be announced at an awards ceremony at 4 p.m. Nov. 9 in the Big 12 Room of the K-State Student Union.
The Capitol Graduate Research Summit is an annual showcase of research conducted by graduate students from Emporia State University, Fort Hays State University, Kansas State University, Pittsburg State University, the University of Kansas, the University of Kansas Medical Center, and Wichita State University. Participants have the opportunity to present their research posters and discuss the important implications their research has for issues in the state of Kansas with state legislators, the governor and the Board of Regents. Academic and industry representatives serve as judges to select the top presenters from each institution to receive scholarship awards.
Additional information about the presenters and the event, including the 2017 Research and the State abstract booklet, may be accessed on the Graduate Student Council Research Forums website.
