Register TODAY for Core Manager Summit Wed Oct 17, 2018
Core and shared facility managers to gather at Tripp Hall, Memorial Union.
The Office of Campus Research Cores invites UW–Madison research core and shared facility managers to a core manager summit to discuss common concerns and opportunities on Wednesday, October 17, from 9:00 am – 11:00 am (with additional networking time) at Tripp Hall in Memorial Union. Please register by October 2.
The goals of the gathering are to: (1) provide a networking platform for core managers to meet one another and explore the diversity and commonalities of research services on campus; (2) discuss challenges and share solutions for areas of concern; (3) provide foundational ideas and an organization for a spring campus-outreach event.
The program will include small-group discussions focused on topics – a tentative list is here but additional topics can be proposed during registration and at the event: Setting Rates, marketing and Outreach, Reservations and Scheduling, Staff Professional Development, Managing Research Data, Working with External Customers, Starting and Ending Services.
Please Register TODAY and be Represented
Every core or shared resource included in the Directory of Resources for Researchers website should be represented. The summit will be most relevant to managers and operational leads, although faculty directors, staff and supporters are welcome. To plan for refreshments and information to share about your core, please register TODAY (Oct 2).
Contact Isabelle Girard with questions or suggestions. We look forward to seeing you at the event!
