The Office of Research and Graduate Studies strives to provide the support faculty need to excel across their research and teaching responsibilities. We believe that regardless of the time you’ve spent in academia, there are still opportunities to learn and bolster your skills. One such opportunity to retool is our Training for Research Faculty (TRF) series.

TRF workshops highlight common experiences and challenges faculty face regardless of discipline. From tips and resources to improve your relationship with your graduate students, to addressing policy regarding the tenure and sabbatical process, TRF provides information and tools for faculty to thrive in their appointments.
