IUP Career Expo and Graduate School Fair 2016

Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex Arena and Concourse

Career Development Center

The IUP Career Expo and Graduate School Fair attracts employers from a variety of industries, as well as graduate school representatives around the United States.

Participating also provides students with an opportunity for face-to-face contact with recruiters and a chance to polish their networking skills, no matter how brief the contact. Although the Career Expo and Graduate School Fair is primarily intended for IUP juniors and seniors of all majors, freshmen and sophomores may also attend to get a general idea of what a career fair entails, as long as they are dressed appropriately.

Banned Books Read Out

Atrium of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building

English Department

Book-Lovers are Invited to Read Out from Their Favorite Banned Books

The IUP English Department, in partnership with the English Graduate Organization, IUP Libraries, and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, will host a Banned Books Read Out in the Atrium of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building from 1-2 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28. 

The Banned Books Read-Out celebrates the freedom to read while it brings awareness to censorship challenges to favorite books and to the ongoing fight to maintain intellectual freedom in schools and libraries across the nation. 

Students, staff, faculty, and the community are invited to attend. Join us to Read Out your favorite passages from Banned Books—or simply to listen and learn about the censorship issues that affect us all. This year’s national Banned Books theme focuses on celebrating diverse authors, and our team of IUP graduate students is working now to assemble passages that highlight diverse positions quite broadly. Come early to select your passage! 

Refreshments! Prizes! Vouchers! Join us for a lively celebration of our freedom to read.

Open access is “the free, immediate, online availability of research articles combined with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment.”

International Open Access Week, now in its ninth year, is an opportunity to take action in making openness the default for research to turn discoveries into better lives. This year’s theme is “Open in Action.” In keeping with this theme, this panel of IUP faculty and administrators will discuss what open access is and why they are committed to it, what steps researchers should take to share their discoveries, and why it matters.
