Thesis / Exit Project Timeline

PPPM PowerPoint Template
Download this PowerPoint file and use it as the foundation of your presentation.  This file has a black background, which looks crisp when projected because you can't see the edges.  The file also has the PPPM and UO logos embedded to help your audience know your affiliation.  It's clean and simple.

Here are some resources to help you make posters.
Letter of Recommendation Policy
If you would like a letter of recommendation from me, please think about why I would be a good person to write a letter on your behalf. If you still would like a letter from me, please provide me with the following in hard copy:
  • Your resume
  • An unofficial transcript, with classes you took from me highlighted
  • Any forms that need to accompany my letter, fully filled out and signed by you if needed
  • A stamped and addressed envelope where you would like it sent. If the letter will be included with other materials, you can leave the stamp off, but be sure to tell me how you intend to get the letter from me once completed.
  • In an email, please attach a draft letter that I can work from. I will edit this letter substantially, but it gives me a starting place and gives me insight into your thinking on what you think I can comment on
