Shanklin Colloquium

Charles E. Shanklin Colloquium

The Charles E. Shanklin Award for Research Excellence was established by the Graduate Student Senate as a meritorious award to recognize excellence in original research by graduate students at Bowling Green State University. Mr. Charles E. Shanklin, a Bowling Green State University alumnus, generously contributed funds to Graduate Student Senate to further graduate research; thus, a special account for the Shanklin Award was established.

This year, Graduate Student Senate will sponsor a Graduate Colloquium named in memory of Charles E. Shanklin on Thursday April 8, 2021. The colloquium is a graduate student research conference. The Charles E. Shanklin Colloquium will highlight the significant research and efforts of graduate students here at BGSU. The colloquium will be via zoom. More details about online itinerary will follow later. Please contact GSS with any questions at gss@bgsu.edu

Additional Information

The participants will not be judged on the presentation of the audio or visual recording. This means, the participants will not be judged on the look of the recorded video or the sound of the audio, as this is out of their control. Judging criteria will focus on interdisciplinary communication, clarity, merit, comprehension, and professionalism. Judges for the paper presentation will consists of volunteer faculty and graduate students from a variety of disciplines and there will be three judges in each time slot allotted where they will evaluate about 3 to 5 participants. SEC members will be moderators and – if needed – judges.  

Additionally, anybody who wishes to participate as a presenter will not be asked to judge for the same category they will be presenting their research. For example, if you are participating in the colloquium as a paper presenter, we will not ask you to judge for the paper presentation. However, if you are presenting a poster and wish to judge the paper panel, you will be considered to participate.
