Inspiring Minds – A Digital Collection of Western’s Graduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity

 

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 broaden awareness and impact of graduate student research, while enhancing transferrable skills. Being able to communicate your research to broad, interdisciplinary and lay audiences -- both inside and outside academia -- is becoming an increasingly important skill for scholars of all levels.

Inspiring Minds seeks to help graduate students enhance this skill.

This non-competitive showcase highlights work by Master's and doctoral students from all 11 of Western's faculties and schools.

The submission period for the 2021 Inspiring Minds Digital Collection is now closed.
