Research success can mean more than just data collection and analysis. Come join us to build those other skills that you don't always get in the classroom. This 1-day "planning camp" brings together topics like organizing data, incorporating multimedia files, addressing IRB or IACUC, making your dissertation or thesis accessible, submitting to Scholar's Compass, and more! 

The Planning Camp is focused on students who have completed coursework and/or are working on their research proposal or early data collection. However, all graduate students are welcome! To get the most out of the Planning Camp activities, bring your laptop and files with you for the hands-on activities. 

Join us 9am-4pm in Cabell Library room 250. Registration is strongly encouraged, in case space runs out.
