The Office of the Vice Provost for Research and the Faculty Senate will host a KU Research Summit Jan. 16 in Wescoe Hall. Researchers in all disciplines, including graduate students and post-docs, are welcome to attend.The free summit is patterned after KU's successful annual teaching summit. The half-day meeting will begin in the morning with opening remarks, followed by three 50-minute break-out sessions. Each session will offer a variety of topics. The summit will conclude with a feedback session and box lunch.

The idea for a research summit grew out of the KU Research Convocation in November.

Each small-group meeting will begin with remarks by a facilitator, followed by about 40 minutes of discussion. Ideas and comments from each small group will be shared in the feedback session.

The complete agenda will be posted soon at Participants are asked to pre-register no later than Jan. 10.
