The conference provided opportunities for graduate students to participate in pre-conference professional development workshops, showcase their research (at any level) to those outside of their academic discipline, network with student peers, postdocs, alumni, faculty and professional staff from across the University and compete for monetary awards. The Drexel Emerging Graduate Scholars Conference also offers the University community the opportunity to learn more about graduate research that aims to solve global challenges through creative, innovative and cutting edge methods.
