Upcoming Special Events

Gossip with Grads
1st & 3rd Wednesdays
Feb 20th, 1 – 2 pm


Come unwind and network with current and prospective graduate students during the University of Utah LGBT Resource Center’s (Union 409) Gossip With Grads event on every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 1-2pm! Snacks will be provided, and all who are currently attending or interested in attending graduate school are invited to attend.

Predatory Publishing: Recognizing and Avoiding Scam Journals & Publishers
Feb 22nd, 3-4 pm


“Publish or perish” is the watchword of academia, and for many researchers professional reputation is gained by curating a list of publications from reputable journals. In recent years, fraudulent journals and publishers have begun to take advantage of academics by tricking them into paying for or participating in worthless publication exercises that enrich the publisher while undermining the researcher’s credibility. Join The Yuput and Rick Anderson, Associate Dean for Collections & Scholarly Communication at the Marriott Library for an invaluable discussion on how to recognize and avoid predatory publishers.

Register here!

Research Communication Fair
Feb 27  |  1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
SMBB Auditorium & Atrium

Your ability to explain your research to different audiences is one of the most basic elements of success as a researcher. Fortunately, the University of Utah has many resources and experts to help you develop important communication skills. Whether your future requires speaking to the chair of a department you’re interested in working for, a group of investors, or just your friends, this fair will be an opportunity to find ways to help you share the importance of your research effectively and easily. Graduate students and postdocs from all disciplines—and their faculty—are invited to attend! The Fair will feature workshops on podcasting, animation, as well as a chance to talk one-on-one with representatives from communication resources across campus.
