Relevant Research Roundtable (R3)

The Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies’ Relevant Research Roundtable (R3) series offers research presentations and graduate student development sessions throughout the academic year. The research sessions, where faculty (departmental, college and university) and advanced graduate students present their latest research, are intended to build a culture of scholarly inquiry and engagement. The graduate student development sessions, hosted by departmental faculty, are designed to assist students in various aspects of graduate studies and career development. Sessions are live-streamed for remote viewing and recorded for later viewing.
