Series’ and Colloquiums

The GRC features research projects and scholarly activity conducted by current students in the Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education Ph.D., M.A., and Student Affairs Administration Master’s program.

The Center for Higher and Adult Education in conjunction with the Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education Program annually hosts the Graduate Research Colloquium (GRC). The GRC is a half day long event featuring presentations of research projects and scholarly activity conducted by current students in the Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education Ph.D., M.A., and Student Affairs Administration Master’s program.  As a community of scholars, the GRC provides an opportunity for students to gather once a year to present their research projects and highlights from their academic and professional development. The GRC also provides an opportunity for newly admitted students to meet with current students and faculty. 

The GRC highlights the research of scholars across three main categories: 1. Academic Showcase sessions (M.A. projects, class-based projects) 2. Research projects (for research conducted independent of a class assignment) 3. International projects The GRC begins with breakfast which allows newly admitted students the opportunity to meet with faculty and current students. Students then attend presentation sessions in concurrent conference format and end the day with lunch with current students and faculty.
