GRADUATE POSTER GUIDELINES
SIZE: 3' x 4'
Students can apply to compete in any one, multiple, or all formats. Oral presentations will occur at the University Center in Cullowhee and Poster presentations will occur at the Ramsey Center in Cullowhee.
If you are in a Distance (Online) Program and cannot travel to Cullowhee, we encourage your participation in the Research Oral (recorded video) and Academic Paper (submitted manuscript) competitions.
These three separate, but complementary activities provide a forum for graduate students to present the results of their graduate research in an area of academic interest to the student and to the Western community. The Graduate Academic Paper Competition is an opportunity for students to submit research (ie: written paper) for blind review and ranking by Western faculty. [Papers can be Plans or Proposals (e.g. business plans, grant proposals, research proposals, etc.); Literature Reviews (any discipline); or Research Papers (any discipline)]
If you have any questions about the 2018 Graduate Research Symposium, please contact the Graduate School (email@example.com).
