On Tuesday, April 3, more than 100 graduate students will present research on a range of topics at the annual Graduate Research Competition in the Kansas Union. The campus community is invited to attend and share in an afternoon of poster and oral presentation sessions. Graduate students will compete for prizes conferred at the Graduate Awards Ceremony on April 12.
The Office of Graduate Studies will co-host the Community Table on Wednesday, April 4. The Community Table offers students, faculty and staff a space to meet others from across campus over lunch. All are welcome with a current KU ID.
