Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week

The Graduate School would like to invite all schools and programs to participate in Pacific’s Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week (GPSAW), beginning the week of April 6, 2020. The week will include activities, workshops, and a research showcase, aimed at celebrating the contributions of our graduate and professional students to the mission of the university, raising awareness of their efforts in teaching, research, and service to our three campuses.

The week will culminate with the Graduate and Professional Student Research Showcase in Stockton on April 10. This competition which will consist of two separate events, a research poster competition and Three-minute Research (3MR) presentation competition. The Research Poster Competition (RPC) will provide a chance for all graduate and professional students to present their research to the campus community. 3MR, formally known as "Three-minute Thesis," is a research competition that will be hosted for the third consecutive year at Pacific. The Graduate School warmly welcomes all students, faculty, staff, and community members to join these events and celebrate the original graduate and professional research conducted across Pacific’s three campuses.
