Welcome to the event!

The Graduate & Professional Student Government (GPSG) is delighted to welcome you to the 22nd annual Graduate Research Symposium (GRS), taking place at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. We know that the last few years have been a challenge for everyone, and so we aim to make this conference an interdisciplinary, inclusive, and diverse space where your scholarship is free to be explored and presented!

There will be opportunities for networking as well as chances to showcase your research to colleagues and professionals in your field. We will be providing food and drinks in more open areas of the Student Union and the Library to ensure the safety of all attendees. We hope you have a wonderful and educational time at the 22nd annual GRS.
