Grad Slam is a campus-wide competition for the best short-style research presentation aimed at a non-specialist audience. This will be the first Grad Slam competition held at California State University, East Bay. Graduate students have three minutes to communicate the key concepts and significance of their research, and will be judged in part on their ability to engage their audiences. Competition judges will be composed of CSUEB staff, faculty, alumni and students.
The competition will take place on Thursday, April 23rd, 2020 in the University Union Bayview room from 12:30 pm - 2 pm.
Grad Slam is an opportunity for you to network with fellow graduate students, alumni, staff and faculty. In addition, you will learn how to communicate your research concisely to a broad audience outside of your own field. Participation in the competition will provide lifelong public speaking skills which can be added on your C.V.
