BROCKPORT, NY—Students from all over the northeastern United States and Canada will gather at The College at Brockport, State University of New York, April 20 for the second annual Master’s Level Graduate Research Conference. They will present original research and artistic endeavors in poster sessions, oral presentations, and creative performances.

The conference offers a unique opportunity to graduate students, says Jamie Spiller, dean of The Graduate School and Assistant Provost and Scholarship at Brockport.

“This Master’s Level Graduate Research Conference provides participants with important professional development opportunities,” Spiller says. “They have an opportunity to present their work in a quality academic conference, open their work to peer and faculty review, and attend workshops on career development and doctoral study preparation.”
