Special Appreciation to Faculty and Student Volunteers
Faculty and students graciously volunteered their time to assist with the set-up and implementation of this event. Approximately 20 faculty and administrators also served as “judges” and provide important feedback to the presenters. Without their assistance and support, this event would not be possible. Thank you to each person who volunteered.
The Graduate College and the Graduate Student Council would
also like to thank all the graduate faculty mentors and the student
presenters for their participation in this event.
Special Thanks to:
Dr. Frank Einhellig: Interim Provost
Elizabeth Bradbury: Chair, Board of Governors
Brian Hammons: Board of Governors
Interdisciplinary Forum Background and History
The annual Graduate Interdisciplinary Forum (IDF) has facilitated a campus-wide and community discussion of the scholarly works of graduate students of Missouri State University since 1994. Although the format, location, and award types have changed over time, the purpose of the Forum has always been to promote an eclectic understanding of the research and creative work of graduate students across disciplines. The Forum also serves to increase public awareness of scholarship activities on the Missouri State University campus. The scale of the Forum has grown over the years from seven participants in 1994 to a high of 160 participants in 2005. In the early years of the Forum, participation by academic college was limited in scope. Currently, however, all of the colleges on campus are represented at the Forum.
