2021 Research Administration Development Plan

For 2021, training offerings will be categorized into four different groups. However, all training may not be exclusive to these categories. Topics were chosen based on the 2019 RA Training Development survey results, needs identified by leadership and conversations with colleagues in Research Administration.
