Scholars' Insights


Wednesday, April 3, 2013 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Provost Randhawa and the OSU Graduate School will host the first annual University-wide “Scholars’ Insight” event on 3 April 2013 from 1:00-5:00pm at the LaSells Stewart Center in the Construction and Engineering Hall. OSU Graduate students will have the opportunity to present the impact of their scholarly works to a non-specialist audience at OSU and the Corvallis community. The event will be broadly advertised. The purpose of the presentations is to generate awareness, stimulate thought, inspire attendees and reach out to the local community. The presentations will be videotaped and shared via “YouTube” and on the web to showcase OSU’s graduate student accomplishments. Graduate students will network with other students, faculty and community members; learn of research and other creative and scholarly activities across the University; and have fun!!!!!!!!!!!! This is similar to the three minute thesis and research presentation events (e.g., Three minute thesis, ‘Ignite” or Scholars’ Studio) occurring around the globe. The event will be followed by a reception for participants and the community, while awaiting the judges’ determination of the three best presentations.

ALL ARE WELCOME: Corvallis community members, OSU faculty, students, and affiliates are all encouarged to attend!  Come learn about the wonderful work graduate students are engaging at OSU!
