What's Your Work About? Crafting Clear and Compelling Abstracts

Learning how to communicate your research is invaluable in terms of your professional development and can be an important part of your career as a graduate student and beyond. Join us in this four-week program to develop your written, visual, and spoken communication skills.

This session will outline the purpose, expectations, and general structure of an abstract, a genre used to communicate complex ideas concisely for other researchers. The session is designed for graduate students who are or will be preparing to submit an abstract to present at a conference or for publication and will include hands-on writing practice.

Registration is open and will remain open until January 10 or until all 30 seats are filled. This session is part of a series, and those who register for all four will receive a certificate. Visit to see more about the series or register directly for Crafting Clear and Compelling Abstracts.
