Research Symposiums

Pathways Annual Symposium

The Texas A&M University System (TAMUS) invites its students and faculty to participate in Pathways Student Research Symposiums held annually at member universities. Texas A&M University-Commerce graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to present results (oral or poster presentations) from their current or past research projects, even if preliminary. These presentations will provide the student researcher an opportunity to discuss their research with participants and faculty.


Annual Federation Research Symposium

The Federation of North Texas Area Universities is a consortium of three institutions in the North Texas area: Texas Woman’s University, Texas A&M University—Commerce, and the University of North Texas. The primary purpose of the Federation is to engage in institutional collaborations for excellence in selected graduate degree programs and fields of study, to facilitate graduate students’ professional development and research opportunities, and to coordinate administrative services for the benefit of graduate students at the three institutions. The Federation has operated since 1968 when it was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
