Research Faculty Happy Hour

This event is designed to encourage research collaboration among faculty.

About the research faculty happy hour

Our research faculty happy hour features five-minute, project “elevator pitches” from faculty members who are looking for research collaborators. These brief presentations give faculty members an opportunity to explain their project ideas, receive valuable feedback from other faculty and connect with potential research partners.
