Cascades Seminar Series

Cascades Seminar Series Logo

The Cascades seminar series is a new initiative that aims to foster collaboration and strengthen relationships with colleagues at primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs) in our region. The monthly seminars provide a platform for PUI researchers to showcase their research efforts, including those involving students who are now Virginia Tech graduate students.

Additionally, the series aims to explore opportunities for collaborations between Virginia Tech and PUI institutions. Furthermore, the seminars offer graduate students opportunities to interact with faculty at PUIs, further enriching their educational experiences.
