GRAD RESEARCH DAY -- Proposals due January 30

Graduate Student Research Day will be held on Friday, March 2. The Educational Psychology Department instituted this annual event in 2001 in recognition of the abilities and talents of its students. This annual event has been designed with three purposes:

-- to provide a format for graduate students to present their research and be recognized locally by peers and faculty
-- to provide students an opportunity for professional development and practice for future state or national conferences, and
-- to promote a department-wide activity that brings faculty and graduate students together around a common goal of disciplined inquiry.

Proposal forms are available at http://www.cehd.umn.edu/edpsych/forms/default.html. Submit proposals to Kathy Walter (kwalter@umn.edu) by Monday, January 30.
