Grad Slam In-Person Semifinal Round Afternoon Heat (2024)


1 to 2:15 p.m., April 3, 2024

After months of workshops on effective presentation, months of training to engage a diverse audience, and months of practicing, refining, practicing, and perfecting, graduate students competed in the preliminary rounds and semifinalists emerged. Their hard work and passion come together in our annual campus-wide competition for the best 3-minute graduate student presentation of a research or creative project. Grad Slam is an excellent opportunity for students to enhance their communication skills. It is also an effective way to showcase the innovative research and creative work associated with graduate education at the University of Arizona. And it’s an inspiring occasion to support our students as they shape a changing world.

Come support our stellar students and prepare to be inspired at GRAD SLAM 2024!
