Graduate College moves 3 Minute Research Presentation finals online

The Northern Arizona University Graduate College is moving the 3 Minute Research Presentation (3MRP) Competition Finals to an online format. 3MRP is an opportunity for NAU graduate students to present their thesis, dissertation, capstone research, scholarship or creative works to a non-specialist audience.

The event encourages professional development and is designed to improve communication skills by requiring students to express their work effectively in three minutes.

Judging will take place in the next few weeks to determine the top three placings. The winner will be announced April 28. Professional videos of the 11 finalists’ presentations will be recorded in NAU’s studios and released at a later time for public voting on additional prizes.
