Forward Thinking Research Symposium is Nov. 30

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) will host the “Forward Thinking Research Symposium” on Tuesday Nov. 30 at 1 p.m. in the AMU Ballrooms. 

The event will showcase research from faculty members and students from all disciplines. Attendees will have the opportunity to share research ambitions and connect with fellow faculty and students from across the university. 

Unlike traditional conferences, where researchers convey the results of work that has been completed, the Forward Thinking presentations focus on projects that will take place in the next 6–12 months.  

The event will begin with a brief welcome and introduction. Then the presenters will present their project in one of two rooms set up in the AMU Ballrooms. Attendees will be able to see them in-person or via streaming on Teams. When the oral presentations are done, the event will wrap up with a reception, which includes tables hosted by some of Marquette’s centers and institutes, a list of curated funding opportunities and space to continue research conversation around the supplemental posters of our oral presenters.

  • 1 p.m. to 1:10 p.m. | Welcome and Introduction
