What is a graduate student colloquium?

USI current and former graduate students will discuss the current state of their work, or the new directions they are pursuing. Presentations can include panel discussions, performances, and posters. Participants may present their contributions in-person or virtually (live - either in person or virtual - or pre-recorded options available).
