NIU’s Graduate Student Research Association will host its annual conference Saturday April 19.

Graduate students will share their research through 39 posters and 33 paper presentations. Campus resources and opportunities will be shared through tables and sessions from the Institute for the Study of the Environment, Sustainability, and Energy; the Center for Black Studies; the Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Language & Literacy; the Writing Center; the Graduate School; and the Office of Sponsored Projects.

Additionally, the afternoon poster session will highlight and facilitate the judging of Sigma Xi research.

James Schmidt and Sean Farrell from the Department of History start the day with a breakfast chat. Keynote speaker James McLurkin will showcase some of his robots during his talk.

The GSRA conference is a great way to begin thinking about student research, which will also be highlighted at the undergraduate level Tuesday, April 22, at the Undergraduate Research and Artistry Day.

Saturday’s conference is free to all interested parties. Information about lunch will be available at the registration desk.
