Graduate Colloquium

The Graduate Colloquium was established in Spring 2019 as a monthly departmental event.  The event gives Master and PhD students the opportunity to present a research project at any stage of development, be it the first ideas and plans, a full-fledged proposal, a conference presentation (planned or already held), or a final paper from a graduate class formulating original ideas.
