Save the Date: Spring 2018 Graduate Research Symposium, 4/25/18  


A unique educational and networking event, the Graduate Research Symposium encourages interdisciplinary exchange, bringing together graduate students from the sciences and humanities. The Office of Graduate Studies encourage prospective students, families, and members of the Stockton community to attend.

Why should Students consider entering the symposium?

The symposium is an exciting opportunity for current graduate students to showcase the research they have been working hard on throughout their graduate career. Additionally, presenting research findings in a professional and academic setting provides an invaluable experience that will benefit students in and outside of the classroom long after graduation.  Students who present in the spring semester will also be entered for a chance to win an award! 

Don't Miss the Chance to Showcase Your Work!

Graduate students interested in participating in the symposium should complete the short Electronic Abstract Submission Form. The abstract should be no more than 250 words. The deadline to submit your abstract for Spring 2018 is March 30, 2018. If you have any questions, please e-mail the Assistant Director, Jessica Grullon, at
