ABOUT THE EVENT

The National Association of Graduate-Professional Students and the University of Kentucky Graduate Student Congress has the honor of inviting you to the 2019 Midwest Regional Conference scheduled for April 25th to 28th in the heart of our campus in Lexington, Kentucky.


This year things will be a little different because we will be hosting a Graduate Student Life Summit, an opportunity for graduate school administrators to join together with graduate students to discuss the most pressing issues facing our communities. Combining the NAGPS Midwest Regional Conference with our first ever Graduate School Leaders Symposium, we will present joint, breakout, and crossover sessions designed to give you the tools you need to be an effective leader in the graduate community.

You must register for the conference in order to present a poster. Poster presentations are scheduled for Saturday April 27th at 4:30 pm in the Jacobs Science Bldg atrium.
