For the first time, graduate students from all UPEI faculties will jointly participate in presenting their research at a university-wide event.
The school of graduate studies is hosting the UPEI Graduate Studies and Research Conference today through to May 18.
“Graduate students drive the university’s research programs,” said Larry Hammell, dean of graduate studies at UPEI. “This conference provides an important opportunity to appreciate their great work across a wide spectrum of research interests.”
These three days are a celebration of the accomplishments of UPEI’s graduate students and their research efforts. Over the course of the two days, graduate students will present their research orally. There will also be invited presentations, including the R.G. Thomson Lecture by George Gitau from University of Nairobi given immediately following the opening ceremonies.
Opening ceremonies will be today at 9 a.m. All are welcome to attend at no cost by registering at www.upei.ca/graduatestudies. Most activities will occur in AVC Lecture Theatre A and the McCain Foundation Learning Commons at AVC.
