Valarie Burke (Graduate College) spoke at the 12th annual conference of the United States Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Association on September 21. Titled "Did You Hear That? That's Graduate Students Sharing Their Research!," the presentation focused on the many resources offered by the UNLV Graduate College to assist students in preparing, conducting, presenting, and publishing their scholarly work. Graduate students work tirelessly and for countless hours on their research, including their theses and dissertations. It is important for them to know how to present their work in various settings, including a formal defense, conference presentation, and a three-minute elevator pitch.
