AU graduate students to showcase work at upcoming Graduate Student Symposium

Aurora University graduate students from across disciplines will present original research to their peers, faculty and the Aurora community during the Fourth Annual Aurora University Graduate Student Symposium on Friday, April 5 from 5:00-9:00 p.m. in the University Banquet Hall. The event will allow students to share their research projects, theoretical work and literature reviews, and give them a place to inform, educate and demonstrate what they have learned through their findings. This opportunity also provides students with the experience of presenting in a formal setting.

The Graduate Affairs Committee, who is coordinating this event, finds that opportunities like this are an important piece to the university as it gives graduate students the chance to convey their work to the outside world and allows them to showcase what they are able to accomplish at AU.

“Graduate students who participate in this event end up seeing themselves in a new light,” explains Henry Kronner, Associate Professor of Social Work and Graduate Affairs Committee Chair. “They realize they are true professionals and have something to offer. A trait I don’t think they would have been aware of if this type of opportunity was not available to students.”

This event is open to the public. For more information, contact Henry Kronner at hkronner@aurora.edu.
