With a focus on building a community of informed researchers and future practitioners, it is important to keep up with a variety of research and topics. Every two weeks, a brown bag meeting is scheduled to hear a guest speaker, graduate student, or faculty member, present about a wide variety of topics including research projects, current issues, and job experience. We also hold workshops to improve other skills such as networking, data analysis, and presentation skills. Listed below are a few examples of some recent brown bag meeting topics and guests:
