2014 Hayes Forum


Dear Graduate Students,

For the last 28 years, the Edward F. Hayes Graduate Research Forum has been sponsored by the Council of Graduate Students, the Graduate School, and the Office of Research. Hayes showcases the innovative research being conducted by Ohio State graduate students. The 28th edition of the Hayes Forum was on Friday, February 21, 2014 from 7:15AM - 2:45PM. All graduate students are welcome to attend and present at the Hayes Forum each year and are strongly encouraged to do so!

Approximately 140 graduate students presented their research as either oral or poster presentations across a range of subject areas. Presenters were judged by some 70 faculty judges who kindly gave up their time to support graduate student research at OSU.The Hayes Forum is a great way for graduate students to grow as professionals, engage with graduate student research, and to network and collaborate across disciplines.

I deeply appreciate the help and assistance of the Hayes Forum Committee, faculty judges, student life, the graduate school, and the office of research in collectively working hard with me to ensure that this year's forum was such a success.
