Friday, May 26th and Saturday, May 27th

Please join us for the GGSE 2023 Research Symposium! This is the fourth annual symposium hosted by the Graduate Student Association in Education (GSAE). Our theme this year is People, Purpose, and Passion: The Pathway to Equity, Community and Accountability in Education. This symposium theme seeks to provide a space for scholars from all backgrounds to discuss how we can make educational spaces a more equitable learning environment for all.  

The vision of this event is to provide a space for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and postdoc to showcase their own work, receive formative feedback, and foster connection building within the GGSE, as well as with the larger UCSB community. We invite anyone from the ED, CCSP, and TEP community to present their research, degree-related work, or community-work at any stage of the process. This is also an opportunity to practice a presentation for AERA or other conferences and to receive low-stakes feedback from peers and faculty. All other UCSB students are also encouraged to participate.

Conference Registration: Open

Proposal Submissions: CLOSED

Register for the reception (aka PROM!): Registration Open
