Letter of Invitation & Nomination Process

Students, Faculty and Staff,

The Graduate School and the Graduate Student Association are pleased to announce the 16th Annual NC State University Graduate Student Research Symposium. Our goals are to showcase the outstanding quality and diversity of graduate-level research at NC State, in addition to providing students with the opportunity to practice and enhance their communication skills with those outside of their discipline. The symposium also is designed to demonstrate the importance of graduate level research to all stakeholders.

This event will feature exceptional graduate student researchers. Each Director of Graduate Programs is invited to nominate four graduate students (either master’s or doctoral) to represent their graduate program. Posters will be judged by faculty in the academic areas that are represented at the symposium.

There is not a formal nomination form to complete. Directors of Graduate Programs should e-mail the names and e-mail addresses of their nominees to my attention at by January 18, 2023. We will then contact the students you nominate with further instructions on submitting their abstracts by the February 7th deadline.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the e-mail address listed above, or at (919) 515-4462.

I hope to see you and your students on April 5th.

David Shafer
Assistant Dean of the Graduate School
