Golisano Hall Auditorium, 70-1400
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

“20/20 Research in Focus,” a new research-focused information and networking series, opens this fall with its first program from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14, in the Golisano Hall auditorium, located in RIT’s B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences. The kick-off event, sponsored by an AdvanceRIT Connect grant, is one of several initiatives being led by RIT’s Council for the Representation and Engagement of Women (CREW) faculty, to highlight the university’s commitment to faculty career development, including research being done by women faculty.

Keynote speaker for the kickoff event is Doreen Edwards, recently appointed dean of RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering. She will discuss how to establish research collaborations and share her extensive experiences as a professor, researcher, administrator and leader of university-corporate research collaborations. CREW will also recognize newly-tenured and promoted women faculty at the event.

The “20/20 Research in Focus” series will continue throughout the academic year. More information about the current or upcoming programs can be found online or by contacting Erica Hickey at Networking takes place after the main presentation; refreshments will be served.
