Graduate Student Appreciation Week
April 1-5, 2019
Graduation Student Appreciation Week celebrates the contributions of graduate students to the mission of the University of Kansas, raising awareness of their efforts in teaching, research, and service to the campus.
Look for “I [heart] Graduate Students” buttons across KU. The Office of Graduate Studies will be handing out these buttons at events during Graduate Student Appreciation Week, and they are also available at the Graduate Studies office in 213 Strong Hall.
Events for Graduate Student Appreciation Week are listed below and will be regularly updated. Though called a "week," events celebrating graduate students take place through out the month of April

Red Hot Graduate Research
Red Hot Graduate Research is intended to bring together graduate researchers from all disciplines. The format of these sessions is inspired by Red Hot Research, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to a topic. In this iteration, Red Hot Graduate Research will feature five graduate researchers speaking for six minutes each.
Audience members are encouraged to connect with the speakers (and each other) during breaks. We hope that through these sessions, graduate students will have an opportunity for cross-disciplinary discourse that will in turn give new perspectives on their work and provide a forum for future work in their chosen research fields.
