Note from the Office of Graduate Studies, 4/30/2020: Due to COVID-19, our signature event, the Spring Graduate Research Symposium that was scheduled to take place tonight was cancelled. Due to the hard work and dedication that our graduate students had already put into their projects, we decided to highlight their abstracts in the below presentation . We also created the Program Booklet so their projects can be highlighted. Thank you to those who submitted abstracts for this project.

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 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.  Students who present in the spring semester will also be entered for a chance to win an award! Graduate students interested in participating in the symposium should complete the short Electronic Abstract Submission Form. The abstract should be no more than 250 words. If you have any questions, please e-mail the Office of Graduate Studies.
