Graduate Education Week, NC State’s annual celebration of graduate students and graduate education, will run March 17-23 this year. The signature event is the Graduate Student Research Symposium on March 20, 1:30-4 p.m.

At the symposium, more than 200 students from over 70 graduate programs will present posters about their research projects. Posters are judged, and winners will be named in various discipline categories following the end of the poster session. Read abstracts for the students’ research posters.

Students are encouraged to come out to support their peers and learn about the great think-and-do research taking place at NC State. The symposium is sponsored by the Graduate School and the Graduate Student Association.

In addition, two faculty members will be recognized as winners of the Graduate School’s Outstanding Graduate Faculty Mentor awards. The awards will be presented at the close of the poster session.

Students are also invited to participate in several other Graduate Education Week events sponsored by the Graduate School.
