Call for Judges: 26th Annual Graduate & Professional Student Research Forum

The Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA) and the Graduate College are delighted to announce the 26th Annual Graduate & Professional Student Research Forum, set to occur on Saturday, April 6.

We are currently seeking faculty members to volunteer as judges for the event. Judges play a crucial role in evaluating the hard work and innovation of our graduate and professional students across various presentation formats, including 10-minute podium talks, five-minute posters, and five-minute creative expressions.

  • Panel Composition: Each session will be evaluated by a panel of 2-3 judges.
  • Sign-Up Deadline: Please volunteer by Monday, March 18.
  • Session Assignment: Details and instructions for assigned sessions will be provided by Monday, April 1.

Your involvement will significantly support and acknowledge the outstanding contributions of our graduate and professional student community.
