Communication within the Curriculum

Through the Emerging Scholar Talk (EST) competition, CWiC celebrates both strong research projects and solid speaking abilities by providing students with a public forum in which to talk about their academic work. All undergraduates are invited to apply. The CWiC-EST Editorial Board will select students to include in the annual series and coach those students to hone their presentations.
