TAC Talks 2017

Inspired by TED Talks, TAC Talks are short presentations on topics that UW Tacoma graduate students are passionate about.  The event is based on the successful Scholars' Studio at UW Seattle, and has been tailored to reflect the unique qualities of the UW Tacoma community.

Thursday, May 18th, 2017 —  5pm — William Philip Hall

This year we accepted proposals on all topics!

Let's show off the array of research happening at UWT.  Be Boundless!


On May 18th, the UW Tacoma Library, in partnership with the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC), the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, and UWT graduate programs, will host a two-part celebration of UWT graduate student research:

  • TAC Talks is a series of short research talks presented by UW Tacoma graduate students, held in William Philip Hall.  Each "lightning talk" lasts 5 minutes.

TAC Talks is an opportunity for the whole campus to learn about the exciting work coming out of UWT graduate programs, and it is a great opportunity for students from all UWT graduate programs to share ideas, practice presenting, get feedback, and make academic and professional connections.
