Inspiring Minds is a campus-wide partnership between Western Research, the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, the Writing Support Centre, Western Communications, Western Libraries, Student Experience, and Western's 11 faculties.

Western's graduate students were challenged to describe their work in 150 or fewer words; this non-competitive showcase highlights a curated group of randomly selected Master's and doctoral students from across campus. It's an exciting snapshot of work in progress and work that will have an impact on our society for years to come.

We invite you to view the student submissions featured below and to take some time to explore the more than 230 submissions received for our 2021 inaugural year in the Inspiring Minds Digital Collection here: https://ir.lib.uwo.ca/inspiringminds/.
