UGSO Academic Research Symposium 9/26

Please join The UGSO Academic Research Symposium Organizing Committee on September 26th, 2019 from 4-8PM for an evening of interdisciplinary talks, posters, discussion, and socializing. The program will include keynotes by Crystal Williams, Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion, and Dr. Karen Warkentin, Professor of Biology and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

As the symposium will highlight the wide variety of graduate student research going on at BU, it is encouraged to submit an abstract to be considered for a poster presentation or a lightning talk at the event. The form for abstract submission is available through the registration link, and the final deadline for abstracts is on August 16th, 2019 at 5PM. Abstracts will be considered on a rolling basis.

UGSO’s mission is to strengthen the community of underrepresented graduate students by providing a venue to share scholarly work with each other, as well as to strengthen relationships between students and faculty. If you have any questions, please email
