About the Series

conference prep workshop

The submission deadline for the Annual All-University Conference on the Advancement of Women in Higher Education is approaching quickly, and the TTU Library will host workshops to help students discuss potential submissions to the conference. Faculty, Staff and Student panelists will be on hand to answer questions and provide feedback.

The workshop will allow students to showcase and discuss their research. Women's Studies minor's both undergraduate and graduate have been particularly successful at this conference in recent years, and this will be a great opportunity to work on paper ideas or unfinished projects.
