2022 Three Minute Thesis Competition
Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Event Recap
The Graduate School and Marquette University held the 3MT® competition on February 25, 2022. The Three Minute Thesis is a global research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland in Australia. It is an academic competition for doctoral and master’s degree students that require each participant to explain his or her research effectively in three minutes, using one slide, with no animation.
After competing in a qualifying round, the finalists were chosen to compete for the coveted prize of $500. Additionally, $250 was awarded to the Runner-Up and the People's Choice winner.
The final competition was judged by Ms. Devi Shastri, Statewide Higher Education Reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel; Mr. Keith Stanley, Executive Director, Near West Side Partners; and Dr. Jeanne Hossenlopp, Vice President for Research and Innovation, Marquette University.
