Graduate Student Research Symposium

On Monday, March 30, the Graduate School and the Graduate Student Council will present the annual Graduate Student Research Symposium, co-sponsored by the Warren Center. This day-long interdisciplinary conference—featuring public lectures, panels, and poster sessions by Vanderbilt’s diverse graduate student body—ends with a keynote address at 4:10 p.m. by Susan Basalla, author with Maggie Debelius of “So What Are You Going to Do with That?”: Finding Careers Outside Academia. Graduate students from all departments of the university are encouraged to submit presentations and attend the symposium.

The Warren Center serves as a partner to the Graduate Student Research Symposium
planning committee, and in that role has helped to create and host a new faculty advisory panel for the yearly event. The advisory panel will support the planning and increase awareness of the symposium across campus. The advisory panel members for the 2008-2009 academic year are: Yi Cui (Electrical Engineering/Computer Science), Mona Frederick (Warren Center), Marc Hetherington (Political Science/A&S Dean’s Office), Anita Mahadevan-Jansen (Biomedical Engineering), Kathryn Schwarz (English), John Thatamanil (Divinity), Terri Urbano (Pediatrics, Kennedy Center), and Donna Webb
(Biological Sciences). The president of the Graduate Student Council, Jon Ahlbin, and the chair of the Graduate Student Research Symposium committee, Molly Brown, represent the GSC on the panel. More information about the symposium and the keynote address by Susan Basalla can be found at the Graduate Student Council website: http://studentorgs.vanderbilt.edu/gsc/researchsymposium/
