Each month we offer one- to two-hour sessions focused on specific topics related to research development. Topics might include finding funding, mentoring, proposal development, and broader impacts. Attendees also will be introduced to program officers at various national funding agencies and will be provided with strategies to approach and build the relationships that are vital to success.

Unless otherwise indicated, our workshops are open to all faculty, students and staff.
