Grad Slam 2022

In Association with the 2022 Graduate Research Symposium
April 25, 2022, 3:00 pm-4:00 pm

Following up on last year’s successful Three Minute Thesis Competition, this Spring the Sonoma State University Office of Graduate Studies will host Grad Slam 2022. Grad Slam is a fast-paced and exciting event in which graduate students present their research, scholarship, and creativity in just three minutes or less. 

Winners of the Grad Slam will receive cash prizes, gain valuable experience delivering a professional presentation, and will represent Sonoma State at the CSU-wide Grad Slam competition on May 6, 2022.

This event will showcase and celebrate our graduate students as they present their research and creative activities. Student presentations will be evaluated by a panel of judges on how well they engage a non-specialist audience and whether they effectively communicate a clear and logical sequence of key concepts that reflect the impact of their ideas.

Graduate students across all disciplines are encouraged to participate in the Grad Slam Competition.

The deadline for registration is April 8, 2022
