Virtual Research Café Q&A

This Q&A series focuses on the "ins and outs" of various research topics and will feature academics, experienced researchers, and other subject matter experts. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion too! These sessions will then be recorded and posted on our website.

These Q&A sessions will be interactive sessions roughly 90 minutes in length, audience members can come and go as their schedule allows, and the sessions will benefit the entire advising community since they will be recorded to watch anytime.
