New Faculty Luncheon

11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. | David B. Haight Alumni Center

Each year USU’s Office of Research and Graduate Studies holds a series of events to orient new faculty members to resources needed to propose, conduct and report research at Utah State, as well as to mentor students in research projects. At the luncheon held during Research Week, new faculty members “speed network” with members of the RGS staff by switching tables every eight minutes to have an opportunity to talk with as many people as possible. During that time they receive face-to-face assistance and provide feedback on their first year at Utah State.
