Upcoming Dissertation Defenses & Qualifying Exams

By order of the Graduate Council, dissertation defenses are open to the public.  While the qualifying oral examination is a private meeting, students may invite up to four observers (who usually attend to take notes on the examination).  

Due to the current status of campus, dissertation defenses and qualifying oral exams may be occuring remotely (via Zoom).  If no location is listed on the flyer, then the defense or exam is happening remotely.  Contact the student directly for remote meeting details, if you would like to attend.
