Graduate Student Speaker Series

In collaboration with the Graduate School and International Education, the University Libraries hosts a Graduate Student Speaker Series during the academic year. This series provides graduate students the opportunity to present research or creative works they have done using materials from Special Collections, and get feedback from our community as they continue their professional development. All graduate students are welcome to apply, and we encourage applications from across disciplines. To apply, fill out the application below.

Please contact Kara Flynn, Research & Educational Services Archivist at with questions or for more information.

Apply to present your research at the Graduate Student Speaker Series.
