The SRC is a student-led annual conference held at HGSE that provides an opportunity for our community to come together and share our ongoing and completed work in the field of education. The conference takes place over the course of a day and features panels, roundtables, and poster presentation by students from HGSE and visitors from across the country, facilitated by faculty and advanced doctoral students. The purpose of the SRC is to provide a venue for students to gain valuable conference practice and experience in a supportive environment, to network, and to learn from one another. All students are invited to propose presentations of completed research, works in progress, or non-empirical work such as literature reviews, theory papers, and policy papers.
