New Faculty "Tech Talks" and Introduction to the Grants and Contracts Office Session It will cover a brief Introduction to the Grants and Contracts Office, but more importantly feature new faculty member's research and/or scholarly activity! 

Each new faculty member will have a few minutes and two PowerPoint slides to present and discuss their interests and/or scholarly activity.  This is to give colleagues a background into these new faces on campus.  There is also time for questions and discussion with the new faculty, as this is a great opportunity to connect research interests and activities across campus!  Beverages and snacks are also served.

It is not necessary to sign up for this event, it is open to everyone!
