The semester may be over, but there are still plenty of opportunities to learn. If you’re on campus this summer and would like to enhance your research skills, we’re here to help! We offer Workshops on Demand for groups of two or more. Let us know what skill or resource you are interested in learning more about and we will work with you to create a workshop to meet your group’s specific learning needs. Visit our Workshops on Demand page to learn more about the areas in which we can offer workshops or to request a workshop.
