Communicating the value of one’s research to the general public can be a difficult task. But the UA prepares graduate students to do just that. Throughout January, February, and March, the Graduate Center offers presentation workshops taught by specialists in oral, written, and visual communication; the workshops provide valuable professional development as students prepare for the university-wide Grad Slam, a contest for the best 3-minute presentation of research and creative work. Four UA finalists then advance to the state-wide challenge and compete with finalists from similar competitions at Northern Arizona University and Arizona State University. This year, University of Arizona graduate students demonstrated their skills in public presentation by winning 2nd and 3rd place at the statewide Arizona 3-Minute Grad Slam.
