Hopefully, you have enjoyed Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week (GPSAW) this past week. What’s going on this afternoon?


On Wednesday, April 7, the Graduate School hosted the 2021 Three Minute Thesis Watch Party and Awards Ceremony, where presentations were viewed and awards were announced.


Brooke Clemmons knows that it is the little things that can show you what you are made of. She is in the sixth semester of a PhD program in the Department of Animal Science, focused on the relationships among nutrition, the rumen microbiome, and host genetics in beef cattle. This is not the first graduate degree she has received at UT, having already received an MS in animal science and an MS in agricultural leadership, education and communication. One can easily see that Brooke not only has ambitious goals, but the drive and skill to achieve those goals. Read more about Brooke and her work in this spotlight.

After multiple rounds of well-crafted presentations during the UT Three Minute Thesis Semi-Finals, twelve participants were chosen as finalists. The Three Minute Thesis competition challenges graduate students to present their research to an audience of non-specialists in three minutes with a single slide. Presentations are then evaluated by a panel of judges with respect to clarity and engagement. The Graduate School would like to introduce you to some of these finalists as part of Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week.

Jordan Brasher, a PhD student in the Department of Geography, is certainly memorable. His specialty is human geography, in which he studies places of memory—statues, museums, and named streets, parks and schools—and how they play a role in conversations about mattering and belonging: whose histories matter, who belongs socially and politically.
