CofC Research Poster Session

An Annual Presentation of Student Projects

The Graduate Student Research Poster Session is held annually, usually near the start of the Spring semester. The poster session provides an introduction to the impressive research activities currently taking place in our graduate programs. It also recognizes the ongoing contributions of graduate students, faculty, and alumni to the betterment of our local, state and global communities. Graduate students apply each fall using the poster presentation guidelines.
