Dear Colleagues,


The Second Annual Faculty Orientation to Research will be held on Friday, September 16th from 8:30-10:30am in Johnson Hall Auditorium 102.  Mary Lidstrom, Vice Provost of Research, is giving the opening remarks. Additional Presentations will be provided by Lynne Chronister (OSP), Tami Sadusky (GCA) and Patti McClure (ORIS).


Who should attend?

New faculty and post docs who are involved or will be involved with research. Please encourage them to attend. Coffee and breakfast goodies will be provided. The Orientation Session is open only to new faculty. However, we will be offering web access to the year long orientation program throughout the year and these sessions will be available for all faculty and staff (see below).


Is registration required?
We are strongly encouraging faculty and post docs to register from the
website, but this is not required.
