Unique Opportunities & Formats

Arts Front.  For 16 years, EMU has provided oral presentation and poster session platforms to support graduate research and creative activity. To both encourage and increase graduate student participation in the arts and arts-based disciplines (e.g. creative writing) we are offering a new session platform,  Arts Front , which allows for an emphasis on more experiential and product forms of research and creative activity (a poem, a sculpture, a personal narrative performance, etc.).
