Abstract submissions need to be for original research being conducted in conjunction with graduate studies. A maximum of 2 submissions may be made per student. If your presentation involves data from human subjects, you will need to obtain IRB approval. Contact the professor guiding your research for assistance with this.
Members of the Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Board will be responsible for a “blind-review” of abstract submissions for the Spring Research Colloquium. One outstanding abstract from each of the eight academic departments in the College Education, Health, and Human Sciences will be selected for an oral presentation. Students selected to make oral presentations will receive a $500 professional development award from the Dean.* Additional abstracts will be selected for the poster session which will be held during the research colloquium.
Abstracts should be a maximum of 350 words and submitted electronically by 5:00 PM on Wednesday, February 1, 2017.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Graduate Student Advisory Board at email@example.com.
*If more than one author is on an abstract selected for an oral presentation, the award will be divided equally among the authors.
