Inaugural Graduate School Symposium to showcase student, faculty research on COVID-19 and other topics

The Southern University Graduate School is offering an up-close look at some of the dynamic research conducted by students during its first Graduate Student Research Symposium on Thursday, April 20 at 8 a.m.-5 p.m. in the School of Nursing Auditorium in J.K. Haynes Hall. The event will feature the research accomplishments of graduate students and their faculty advisors, focusing on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.


“The symposium is designed to foster graduate student engagement in scholarly activities, provide them the opportunity to share their research findings, and contribute to the SUBR vision of maintaining its Carnegie R2 High Research classification designation while aiming to become an R1 Very High Research institution in the near future,” said Ashagre Yigletu, interim dean of the Graduate School.


This one-day event will feature oral presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions, and keynote speakers. This symposium is sponsored by the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) Graduate Research Assistant program.


All sessions of the Symposium are free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Graduate School at or 225-771-5390.
