The Research Symposium represents one of the GSC’s core missions: to promote communication between disciplines and across the schools. This is a great opportunity for graduate students to develop and hone their public speaking skills. It will challenge you to discuss your research with an audience of diverse academic backgrounds and allow the Tufts community to appreciate the extent of scholarly work that takes place here. The theme of this year’s symposium is effective communication. You can chose to present in one or more of the three different sessions: 15-minute presentations, 5-minute presentations, and a poster session.
