BEFORE submitting Ph.D. defense information to the Department of Biology, you MUST announce your defense officially to the University Graduate School via the PhD Defense Announcement eDoc. This eDoc should be submitted at least 45 days before your defense date to allow time for routing to the UGS. Once the UGS approves your defense date, you can use our form below to announce your defense to the department.
Submit your dissertation defense announcement for the IU Biology website
Announce your defense seminar
Please submit the following information about your defense seminar to be posted on the password-protected defense seminar announcements page on the IU Biology website.
- Your name
- Your advisor’s name
- Day and time of seminar
- Title and abstract for your seminar
- Building and room number and/or Zoom registration or meeting link (and Zoom password, if applicable); NOTE: IU recommends requiring participants to register for your meeting; see https://kb.iu.edu/d/ativ#require-register
- A photo of yourself—if you prefer a different photo than the one in the graduate student directory
If you don’t have all of the information at once, no worries. The basics can be posted and additional information added to your listing when you have it.
Submit your information to the IU Biology webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the form below.
