About the workshop

As an undergraduate researcher, you know the importance of sharing your work with others. Learning how to effectively communicate your research with a wide audience is a valuable skill to hone. Join us for this interactive workshop as we delve into the components of an effective elevator pitch. You will have time to draft and edit your research elevator speech as well as get feedback from your peers. Open to all disciplines, majors, and years!
