What resources are available for presentations to undergraduates about graduate school?

You’re welcome to use a slide deck [PDF] CRA-E developed in 2019. The slides are quite full as they are also intended to be read by interested students. The slide deck is also available in PPTX format for adapting to your needs. 

The presentation of the 2019 slide deck takes easily 50 minutes to present and expect Q&A to take 20 minutes or more. We encourage you to customize the presentation for your time needs and for your institution. Here are some suggestions:

  • Add true stories about students from your institution who went on to graduate school (e.g., where they applied, where they went, what they’re doing now).
  • Provide information about admission rates from your department to various graduate programs (e.g., your institution might have a particularly good track record at some specific graduate programs).
