Graduate Capstone Colloquium

Celebrating the achievements of students!

During their final academic year in the program, candidates for a master’s in higher education or community engagement embark on a year-long research project on a topic of their choice. The capstone requires research, interviews, and data analysis, and comes together with a research paper and poster presentation.  

The posters are presented at the annual capstone colloquium event, along with two students - selected by their peers - who will present their topic and findings.
