Templates are available for graduate students making posters for professional conferences or displays. These templates already have the UMN/CEHD/FSOS branding in place, and are ready for content.
All templates are in .PPTM format (macro-enabled) and can be used in Microsoft Power Point 2007 or higher. The templates have the ability to incorporate "smart art" for diagrams; there are "smart art" placeholders in the templates that can be deleted.
