Graduate Initatives

In conjunction with the Office of the Provost and the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, The Commons offers several opportunities for graduate students to become involved in the development of programs, share their research, and meet colleagues from across disciplines. As The Commons continues to explore the theme of “The Future University,” it acknowledges that the future of higher education sits with the next generations of leaders. As such, much of the graduate programming is developed by graduate students, who lend important and insightful perspectives to the larger programming at The Commons.

Graduate Student Event, Red Hot Research
4:00-5:30pm Friday, March 1, 2019 The Commons

Red Hot Graduate Research is intended to bring together graduate researchers from all disciplines. The format of these sessions is inspired by Red Hot Research, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to a topic. In this iteration, Red Hot Graduate Research will feature five graduate researchers speaking for six minutes each.

Audience members are encouraged to connect with the speakers (and each other) during breaks. We hope that through these sessions, graduate students will have an opportunity for cross-disciplinary discourse that will in turn give new perspectives on their work and provide a forum for future work in their chosen research fields.
