CoE Graduate Student Conference

The Faculty Lunch Panel 


The Faculty Lunch Panel speakers at the CoE Graduate Student Conference engage in candid discussions with graduate students and other participants during the lunch time. This panel provides an open forum for conference participants to pose questions to the panelists and to seek advice on various aspects of academic and research endeavors. The discussion typically covers areas such as research strategies, time management, mentorship, balancing work and personal life, and the challenges and rewards of pursuing a PhD.

We have diverse speakers this year on the panel:




Paul Bruno, Assistant Professor, Education Policy, Organization and Leadership, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign 






Cynthia D'Angelo, Assistant Professor, Educational Psychology, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign





Amber Dewey Schultz, Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Theatre






Colleen Lewis, Associate Professor of Computer Science, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
