Annual UPEI Graduate Studies and Research Conference

On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday May 16, 17, 18, 2018, the Faculty of Graduate Studies will be holding its annual UPEI Graduate Studies and Research Conference. This will be the first time that grad students from all UPEI faculties will jointly participate in presenting their research at a university-wide event. 

These three days are a celebration of the accomplishments of our Graduate Students and their research efforts. Over the course of the three days, graduate students from multiple faculties will present their research orally.
