Dear Graduate Students,
You must know by now that our thoughts are constantly on you, your well-being, and the well-being of your families. During this period of unprecedented separation, creating opportunities for GSAS students to come together and enrich each other’s lives is critical to the future of our community.
In the spirit of maintaining our connectedness and for the enrichment of our community, the GSAS is launching the Graduate Student Summer Speaker Series (GS4). Series speakers are invited to prepare a 30-minute research talk using PowerPoint, Prezi, or any other software you prefer. The presentation will be given with a Zoom audience. Audience questions will follow the presentation. Twenty-four finalists will be selected to present on their own current research, proposed research, or completed research projects. Two speakers will be scheduled to present each Tuesday at 11:00 AM (Eastern) between
June 2nd through August 25th. An Amazon gift card will be given to each speaker.
The GSAS Dean's Office invites you to volunteer or nominate a fellow GSAS student to become a featured speaker in our series. To nominate yourself or someone else please email the following:
Full name, Department, and Advisor(s)
Brief abstract (200 words, single space) of your topic with full title of the presentation
Indicate if you are nominating yourself or a fellow student. If nominating a fellow student, include their full name and department and their email address.
This will be an excellent professional development opportunity that will make a valuable addition to your vita. And, it will also be a chance for us to get together, make contact, and learn about each other’s work.
Thank you and we look forward to receiving your nominations.
Bob Cook, Dean, Graduate School of Arts & Sciences
Jackie Dejean, Assistant Dean of Research, School of Arts and Sciences and Assistant Dean, Diversity & Inclusion, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences
