Research Forum

The UNLV Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA) and the Graduate College host the Graduate & Professional Student Research Forum each spring, which showcases excellence in research conducted at the graduate and professional level.

Next year’s event will be held on the second floor of the UNLV Student Union on Saturday, February 23, 2019.

Please join us on SaturdayFebruary 23, 2019 for the Forum Kickoff: The “Inspiration, Innovation, Impact” Reception held from 4:00pm - 6:00pm. This event will feature the best in graduate and professional student scholarship at UNLV.

This past year's Research Forum Schedule, held on Saturday, gives the times for the poster and platform sessions.

Posters must be submitted to the Student Union Ballrooms, by Friday, February 22nd, between 12-3 p.m. Awards are given at the close of the event to recognize outstanding presentations. Please note that both podium and poster sessions involve a 5-10 minute presentation.

Faculty interested in supporting the Research Forum as judges may contact either Kristyne Wiegand, GPSA Vice President and Chair of the Research Forum Committee, and/or the GPSA Manager, at any time during the year. Faculty are encouraged to come support their students and attend the forum sessions.

Each year, the GPSA awards funding for research and conference travel to support projects that directly affect a student’s degree program and make a contribution to his/her discipline. In 2017–2018, $160,000.00 was awarded to students for research and conference travel. Participation in the annual Research Forum is a requirement for students who received GPSA funding for the 2018–2019 academic year. The forum is open to all UNLV graduate and professional students.
