HALE Graduate Research Colloquium (GRC)

The 2019 GRC will take place on Saturday, February 16, 2019

The Department of Educational Administration annually hosts the Graduate Research Colloquium (GRC). The GRC features research projects and scholarly activity conducted by current students in the Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education Ph.D., M.A., and Student Affairs Administration Master’s program.  As a community of scholars, the GRC provides an opportunity for students to gather once a year to present their research projects and highlights from their academic and professional development. The GRC also provides an opportunity for newly admitted students to meet with current students and faculty.
