Poster Sessions

As part of Graduate Student Appreciation Week, February 20, 2019 has been designated as Research Day! All graduate students are welcome to participate in the poster session. Students will present their research while developing professional presentation and communication skills. 

Students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend the poster session and view posters of the research projects that students are currently working on in various disciplines.  This is an opportunity for students to disseminate their research and receive feedback while engaging with colleagues. 

 A workshop will be available for those who need guidance with their poster planning and development.

Graduate Student Teaching Excellence Award

Consistent with the Graduate School strategic plan, the Graduate School will continue to raise awareness of the very important work our graduate students do on campus by offering an annual Graduate Student Teaching Excellence Award.  The purpose of the award is to encourage and reward excellence in teaching to teaching assistants who embody the mission and vision of Marquette University by reaching beyond traditional academic boundaries and embracing new and engaging methods of teaching, learning, research and service in an inclusive environment that supports all members in reaching their fullest potential.
