Recurring Events

National Constitution Day Lecture

In recognition of Constitution Day, which commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, educational institutions receiving federal funding are required to deliver educational programming about the Constitution.Carnegie Mellon University Libraries has presented these lectures in partnership with the Division of Student Affairs since 2005, previously covering topics like gerrymandering and the Civil War Amendments. The University Libraries' original printedcopy of the Bill of Rights is typically on display for this event. 

 

Three Minute Thesis Competition

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an internationally recognized competition that challenges PhD students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just 3 minutes, in language that anyone can understand. 3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ research but requires students to consolidate their ideas, crystallize their research discoveries and capture the imagination of their audience.
