A unique educational and networking event, the Graduate Research Symposium encourages interdisciplinary exchange, bringing together graduate students from the sciences and humanities. The symposium is an exciting opportunity for current graduate students to showcase the research they have been working hard on throughout their graduate career.

The Office of Graduate Admissions and the William T. Daly School of General Studies encourage prospective students, families, and members of the Stockton community to attend.

Don't miss the chance to showcase your work!

Presenting research findings in a professional and academic setting provides an invaluable experience that will benefit students in and outside of the classroom long after graduation. The Spring Graduate Research Symposium will take place on Monday, April 22, 2024. The submission form is currently closed. Please contact Sarah Albertson with questions or concerns.
