The number 1 reason students give for registering for the RIT Graduate Research and Creativity Symposium is “my professor told me it was a good opportunity.”

I want to encourage you to submit your works of research, scholarship and creative endeavor in the 2015 Graduate Research and Creativity Symposium.  This is an opportunity for you to discuss your work with an audience beyond the classroom.  You can be at any stage of research from beginning to end.  There are opportunities for oral and poster presentations.  There will also be a luncheon as part of the symposium with Ray Ptucha as the keynote speaker.  Registration is now available online and will be open until February 15th, 2015.  For more information on the symposium  Register Here  Once you have registered I will be sending you instructions on how to deliver your research information to me and a schedule for the day. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me
