RII Meet Yourself

A twice-monthly online learning event for RII employees

At the University of Arizona, our research is creating the next generation of knowledge and applying it to society’s grand challenges – enhancing economic development and promoting a better quality of life in Arizona and beyond.

It’s a vast undertaking, especially in this post-pandemic world where our work takes on a new urgency. That’s why the Office of Research, Innovation & Impact created a new twice-monthly event, an opportunity for employees working within RII to learn more about the scope of our research enterprise.

RII Meet Yourself is a live online event where operations units under RII present information on their responsibilities, what’s new, and how to reach out for help and information. A Q&A will follow each presentation, with time to answer questions about the presenting unit(s).

Anyone from RII institutes, centers, museums, core facilities, and innovation units who would like to present, should contact Carrie Stusse, manager, Administrative Services, at cms1@arizona.edu.

A new Zoom registration will be required for each RII Meet Yourself. Look for the registration announcement at the beginning of each month in The Abstract newsletter. It will be followed up with an email reminder.
