GradDays: Dissertation Speed Dating

  • Newcomb Hall Commonwealth Room (map)

An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present; would you be able to explain yours in just 3 minutes? We are joining forces with Amy Clobes at career services to learn how to effectively compress years of reading literature, conducting experiments, and analyzing results into a clear, complete, and coherent elevator speech.  Explain your dissertation in a face-to-face presentation to our elite UVA faculty in 3 minutes. Prizes will be awarded for the student with the best pitch.


Professors include:

Ricardo Padron, PhD (Spanish)

Robert Sayler, JD (law)

Walter Ott, PhD (Philosophy)

Barry Hinton, PhD (Cell Biology)

Christina Mobley, PhD (History)

And more!
