Office of the Vice President for Research seeks input on future workshops

With the summer months comes time for planning, and the Office of the Vice President for Research is busy planning new programming for faculty researchers next academic year.

To help us identify the agencies most in-demand by faculty, we invite all UofSC faculty researchers to provide input via our 2022-2023 Short Workshops Interest Form.
