The 2020 Graduate School Poster Session was a big success with over 20 graduate students participating. We had representatives from a variety of programs including History, Marine Biology, Computer Science, Environmental and Sustainability Studies, English, Business Administration, Public Administration and more. We love to see so many of our programs represented in these events and want to thank everyone for their participation. It is clear that the graduate students of the University of Charleston, South Carolina are nothing short of extraordinary, and we have no doubt that you’ll be reading about these projects in the next year or so when they get published in academic journals.
As everyone did an incredible job, it was not an easy feat to determine the winners. We would like to thank our judges, Simon Lewis, John White, Hugh Haynsworth, Deanna Caveny, Godfrey Gibbison, and Jon Hakkila, for doing the impossible.
