Presentations

When you present your work to others, you represent the university, and the university represents you.

Whether you are giving a talk to your colleagues on campus or presenting groundbreaking research at an international conference, your work should reflect the university’s identity.

It’s a win-win—the university gains prestige by being associated with you, and you benefit from the university’s reputation.

On-Campus Printing Resources

There are two resources on campus for printing research posters—both accept payment by departmental transfer. UCopy is the most commonly used resource, as they are able to print posters on a short deadline. University Printing and Mail also prints research posters.
