All-Campus Zoom Meeting on Research Activity

The Office of Research will have a sixth All-Campus Zoom Meeting on Research Activity on Tuesday, April 28, at 1:30 pm. As we have in the past, the meeting will begin with brief updates from VP Ostrander and AVPs Fulkerson and Peluso. We will then open the remainder of the meeting for Q&A. You will all be muted when you come into the meeting and you will have the opportunity to pose questions, which will be answered in real time, via the “Chat Function.” You are encouraged to only post questions that are of general interest to the group.
