STBE Represents App State in the Regional 3MT Competition at the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools (CSGS)

More than 300 representatives from more than sixty universities attended the 2024 Conference of Southern Graduate Schools (CSGS), which was held on March 13-15 in Greenville, South Carolina. The meeting this year was hosted by Clemson University.

The group’s theme for this year’s conference is “Navigating the Falls: Reflection, Resilience, and Reinvention in Graduate Education”. It addresses the current challenges in higher education while giving a nod to the beautiful Reedy River Falls of downtown Greenville.

The conference hosts the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition for the graduate students who won their local institute level 3MT competition. Chijioke Agupugo, a graduate student from the Department of STBE Masters of Appropriate Technology program, who won first place at the App State 3MT competition participated in the regional competition. Chijioke attended the conference accompanied by his research supervisor Dr. Sohad Abu-elzait, Dr. Ashley Colquitt, the Dean of App State’s Williams School of Graduate Studies, and Dr. Ross Gosky, the Associate Dean of Williams School of Graduate Studies.
