“The exhibition will showcase the diversity of outstanding research being done by graduate students on our campus,” said Mark Wardell, right, dean of the Toulouse Graduate School which is co-sponsoring the event with the Graduate Student Council. “The exhibition also offers our undergraduates a first-hand look at opportunities available at the graduate level at UNT.”
Students will be competing in eight categories including:
“Winners will be determined by how well entrants present their research or creative endeavor to a general audience,” Wardell said. “Whatever the presentation – music, research posters or visual arts – students will gain a valuable experience in professional development they will use throughout their careers.”

Research presentations and a visual arts exhibition by doctoral and MFA students will be March 3 in the University Union, third floor.
