CAO and VP for Research Launch

Lunchtime “Learning Webinar Series”

October 19, 2021 – March 22, 2022


October 7, 2021—Dr. Malva Reid, Assistant CAO for Graduate & Online Education and Academic Partnerships, and Dr. Victor McCrary, V.P. for Research, have developed a “Lunchtime Learning Webinar” series on grant writing and publication topics.

The first of the seven (7) webinars, entitled “IRB 101 for Faculty and Graduate Students,” will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, October 19th  from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.  (Click here for more information about this session.)
