Updated Information: The Graduate Academic Symposium, held in conjunction with the Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE), will be a virtual conference on May 14, 2020. The conference schedule can be found here.

The Symposium is an opportunity for students to share creative and/or scholarly work that they have undertaken during their graduate studies in a poster or oral format. Student presenters will upload a presentation file and an audio file with an oral description of their work. On the day of the event, attendees will be able to connect to online meetings with the presenters to ask questions about their work. We hope you will join us for this first-of-its-kind event at Valpo! Please find our Graduate School poster and oral presentations below and the undergraduate SOURCE Conference Sessions here.
