An elevator pitch is a short summary introducing yourself or ideas to someone quickly. Preparing what to say for a chance encounter helps make a good impression if the opportunity arises. In this session, a one-slide visual aid showing faculty research interests will be the basis for short presentations by each of the faculty mentors.
