Social media press kit: Graduate Interdisciplinary Forum

The Graduate Interdisciplinary Forum showcases graduate student research and creative works through oral, poster and performance presentations.

The forum is open to the public, which provides an outstanding opportunity for Missouri State students to engage the community with their research. For many students, it also marks the culmination of months — and even years — spent focused on topics they’re passionate about.
