Graduate Research Symposium

Each spring, the Graduate Student Association sponsors a research symposium to present graduate research work to the university and Richmond community.

The event is an excellent opportunity for graduate students from all disciplines to present their original research and creative projects to faculty, staff, students and community members. Participation in this event has nearly doubled every year and attracts not only VCU students and faculty, but local media, legislators and respected members of the Richmond business community.
