For all thesis and dissertation defenses, in addition to above, please ensure you’re using the latest version of Zoom. Also, while publicizing your defense via social media is helpful, due to the security issues related to Zoom, consider only sharing the link with your program and via your school/college listserv. The UH academic calendar should also include it via your defense announcement.
