FOURTH ANNUAL RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM
APRIL 19-21, 2022

WELCOME

ABOUT

The Fourth Annual UAGC Research Symposium is hosted jointly by the College of Arts and Sciences and the Forbes School of Business & Technology, in collaboration with the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. This three-day virtual event features presentations from current University of Arizona Global Campus students and recent Ashford University alumni. Presenters will discuss the research they have proposed or completed during their academic program or findings from a Capstone project. 

Presenting at the Research Symposium is an excellent way for students and recent alumni to share their expertise in a topic and engage with peers, staff, and faculty around their research interests.  We invite you as a member of the UAGC community to join us for the live virtual presentations listed below.
Please visit the e-Posters presented by UAGC students and alumni.
