Our Mission

To unify and represent the graduate student body at the University of Kentucky in matters affecting the quality of graduate student life and work and to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration and promote professional development for graduate students through seminars, forums, and social functions.

Three-Minute Thesis (3MT)

Keep an eye out for our upcoming annual 3MT Competition, a TED-Talk style competition that asks you to plainly translate your research for a popular audience in three minutes! Check out these great talks from last year's Doctoral 1st Place/People's Choice, Jianing Li, and Master's 1st Place/People's Choice, Shayan Mohammadmoradi. 

We're offering preparatory workshops, cash prizes (who doesn't love more money?), and an all-expenses paid trip to the 2016 regional finals in Charlotte, NC for UK's winner, so keep an eye on our page for details about this awesome event! Be sure to check the Events tab on this page for more information about the history, rules, and details of the 3MT.
