New to the Fall Student Showcase this year is a 3MP (Three Minute Presentation) competition. The 3MP competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by students at Longwood University. This competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and communication skills through a highly polished and practiced three-minute oral presentation.  3MP presenters are allowed to have one slide and presentations need to be appropriate to non-specialist audiences so anyone can understand the potential impact of their research.

You can view the winning presentations and additional 3 Minute Presentation videos on Longwood's Digital Commons: Fall 2022 3MP Competition Videos
