Graduate Student Academic Showcase

Celebrate the Research of USF Graduate Students

The Graduate Student Senate (GSS) annually hosts a Graduate Student Academic Showcase to highlight graduate students' research and other work. This is the only graduate student event that aims to highlight and showcase the diverse array of academic and scholarly works for graduate students from all of the academic schools and colleges.

In addition to showcasing the works of graduate students, the newly elected representatives of the GSS will be introduced and awards will be presented to graduate student organizations (GSO) and a GSO advisor who have contributed to bettering graduating student engagement.
