he Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition held worldwide that provides current graduate students an opportunity to foster effective presentation and communication skills. Participants have just three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research project to a non-specialist audience. This is the eighth annual competition sponsored by The Graduate School. A distinguished panel of judges will select first and second place while the audience will select a presenter to receive the People’s Choice award.
Congratulations and good luck, Colleen!
