Departmental Research Workshops/Colloquia

Doctoral students are expected to regularly attend and fully participate in research workshops and colloquia sponsored by the department in their areas of concentration. These workshops and colloquia are an integral part of the scholarly activity in the department and are a particularly important part of the student’s experience in the Ph.D. program. Faculty will evaluate the doctoral student’s attendance and participation in these workshops and colloquia as part of the annual review, and poor performance may be grounds for dismissing a student from the Ph.D. program.
