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.

Inspiring Minds seeks to enhance awareness and broaden the impact of graduate student research.

Being able to communicate research to broad, interdisciplinary and lay audiences – inside and outside academia – has become an increasingly important skill for scholars of all levels. Inspiring Minds seeks to help graduate students enhance this transferrable skill.
