Faculty Research Conference & Graduate Research Conference

The Faculty Research Conference and Dr. Gregory P. Domin Graduate Research Conference are multidisciplinary conferences that affords Faculty and Graduate Students from across the U.S. an opportunity to present their research among their peers in an open and relaxed atmosphere.

The goal of the Conferences is to encourage the free flow of ideas and knowledge across a broad spectrum of subjects in order to initiate new thought processes and methods for dealing with the issues facing the world today.

The Faculty Research Conference and the Graduate Research Conference are hosted on the main campus of Columbus State University at the Cunningham Conference Center in Columbus, GA.
