How We Started 

GRADShowcase is a conference for students by students. We came up with the idea at Yeates School of Graduate Studies’ GRADCafe, an event where students from across disciplines discussed themes of leadership and changing the world.

What better way to apply the desire to change our world than by sharing our research with each other to collaborate on solutions?

Our Mission 

Our mission is to bring together Ryerson graduate students from across disciplines to collaborate and discuss the ways in which our research can change the world. Build a community of leaders who have the skills to succeed in their graduate careers and beyond.
