Huskey Exhibition Highlights Graduate Research

March 11, 2009 — The ninth Annual Huskey Research Exhibition, the cornerstone event of the Graduate Arts & Sciences Council at the University of Virginia, will be held Monday in Newcomb Hall. More than 100 students representing 20 different Arts & Sciences programs will offer oral and poster presentations outlining their research.

Volunteer faculty judges will give students feedback. Cash prizes will be awarded for each session across four categories: arts and humanities, biological and biomedical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and physical science and mathematics, the category with the most submissions. Each category will feature at least 10 oral presentations.

This year, more than $10,000 in award money was donated by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies, Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs, and the Graduate Arts & Sciences Council.

The poster session will be held in the Newcomb Hall Ballroom from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with oral presentations to be made in morning and afternoon sessions throughout Newcomb Hall.

The closing ceremony, including a keynote address from Aaron Mills, associate dean for graduate programs, and an awards ceremony, will begin at 3:45 p.m.

The poster session, oral presentation sessions, and keynote address and awards ceremony are open to all members of the University community and general public. Arts & Sciences faculty and students are welcome to participate as evaluators for the poster session.
