Conference Day

Conference Day

Since the inception of the Ph.D. Program in Interdisciplinary Studies in July of 2006, Conference Day has been an integral part of the academic residency experience. Organized bi-annually by advanced graduate students in their fourth term of studies, Conference Day affords Union Institute & University students, faculty, and guests with an opportunity to share their research in a variety of scholarly, professional, and artistic formats. Thus, aside from formal panels lead by discussants, Conference Day facilitates creative readings, roundtable discussions, art exhibits, lectures, and keynote presentations by distinguished scholars.
