A Focus on Graduate Students
Dr. Robert J. Huskey, professor of Biology, served the University of Virginia for 32 years. As Associate Dean for Graduate Studies, Dr. Huskey sought to improve the graduate student experience, in particular by developing assistantships and providing affordable health care. To honor Dr. Huskey's commitment to graduate students, in 2001 the Graduate Student Council introduced the Huskey Graduate Research Exhibition. This upcoming exhibition will mark the 18th annual opportunity for graduate students to present their innovative research with the University of Virginia community.
The exhibition is intended for a general audience. High-scoring presentations will effectively 1) set up the question being investigated; 2) frame the question in context of its broader importance; 3) communicate an evidence-based argument; 4) be accessible to an audience of diverse educational backgrounds.
Eligibility: Graduate students within the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences are able to apply.
Oral presentation (10-12 minutes) slots are limited. There will be three separate sessions available:
- Natural Sciences
- Social Sciences
- Arts & Humanities
Poster presentations (deliverable in 4-5 minutes) should be targeted towards a general audience.
