Summer 2013 Research Award Presentations

Every summer, our graduate students go to all corners of the world to pursue their research. Every fall, they return with new data, new perspectives, and a better understanding of both the world and their own field of research. Their summer data expands the Department’s research culture, increases our overall research capacity, enhances the creativity and productivity of both the student researchers themselves, and the academics directing their work, and provides opportunity for our student researchers to better identify their goals and research needs. Ultimately, these efforts contribute not only to the building of human capital inside our Department, but primarily to impact elsewhere after our students graduate and deploy their new-found abilities all over the world. Research-based studies are the primary pillar of what this Department is all about. This is why we are so proud of what our students have accomplished. We encourage everyone to attend the Summer 2013 Research Award Presentations! Mark it on your calendars!
