Workshops and Events

Research Services offers workshop modules on-demand, and can develop a workshop specific to the learning needs of the department, unit or college.  These workshops are intended to welcome and introduce faculty who are new to Georgia Southern and/or new to the research enterprise to the institutional units and personnel, resources and best practices, and policies and procedures supporting research activities, including funding opportunities, proposal development, compliance, research integrity and post-award needs.
New faculty and those new to research are strongly encouraged to attend workshops to meet the university’s research administrators and learn of policies and resources pertaining to externally-funded projects.
