The aim of the Graduate Student Conference at URI is to facilitate the innovative scholarship of graduate students across the nation and globe by providing opportunities for them to share academic work, receive scholarly feedback and network professionally. The event also facilitates the integration of faculty, promising scholars and colleagues in an interdepartmental intellectual dialogue. The Graduate Student Conference is a unique opportunity for graduate students to present their scholarly work at URI in a formal conference setting. Each year conference attendees hear from two highly respected and provocative speakers—one a professor from the URI community, the other a renowned visiting scholar.
