Throughout the academic year, the Graduate School sponsors special events that occur throughout the fall and spring semesters.

Graduate Research Forum

The Graduate Research Forum allows graduate students from across academic disciplines to share their scholarship in poster and oral presentations, while graduate alumni and faculty evaluate their presentations.  The 12th annual Graduate Research Forum took place on November 6, 2020. Plan to attend the 13th Annual Graduate Research Forum on Friday, November 5, 2021.

Dr. Gerald H. Sanders Three Minute Thesis

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition that develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The 3MT® supports the development of research students' capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes in a language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience. The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. The 3MT® is sponsored in loving memory of Dr. Gerald Sanders, Chair of the Department of Communications, Miami University, 1981-1992. Donors include Dr. Guorong Jiang and Hongyan Tang. The final competition was held on February 23, 2022, at 4:30 PM EST in Shideler Hall 152.

 

RedHawk Talks

RedHawk Talks is a unique opportunity for graduate students to develop a concise and compelling TED-like talk about their research, passions, or ideas. A group of graduate students are selected to engage in a five-part workshop to build, refine and practice their talk. Students have the opportunity to present their talk at an event open to all Miami and Oxford community members.

Graduate Student Development Series

The Graduate Student Development Series offers graduate students the opportunity to learn strategies for personal and professional growth in one-hour sessions facilitated by Miami University faculty and/or staff. Sessions in Fall 2022 will occur on most Fridays from 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM ET, with the option to join in-person or virtually. Students who attend 8 or more sessions in a semester will receive a “Commitment to Professional Development” recognition. We hope to see you there!
