The Graduate Student Research Forum is a one-day conference held annually at the UO to showcase research and creative expressions by graduate students in all of the UO’s graduate colleges and schools.
The theme of this year’s forum, “Engagement: Community, Creativity, Connections,” reflected the importance of sharing research with new audiences. The event included more than 170 graduate students representing more than 50 disciplines from across campus—the largest in the five years it has been held.
