Research Colloquium - Graduate School

Research Colloquium

The Student Research Colloquium was established in 1998 to provide TU students with an opportunity to gain public speaking experience, learn about research from fields outside their own academic discipline, and experience judging methods used by professional organizations for national and international meetings/conferences.

This year’s event is scheduled for March 27, 2023 – March 31, 2023.

Submissions will start being accepted at the beginning of the spring 2023 semester.

Who can participate?

Any TU student who is involved in a research project for any discipline.

What events are available?

Oral presentations and video competition

What type of research is accepted?

Presentations may contain original research or scholarship that you may be conducting, work that you already submitted for a classroom project during the previous fall semester, or work in progress for the Spring semester. Some students also use the Colloquium as an opportunity to present research proposals or scholarships for which they are contemplating an in-depth study. Research does not have to be experimentally based. Humanities, business, engineering, legal, physical sciences, and social science topics are all welcome.
