Multidisciplinary Research Panel Series

August 2018 Research NewsletterThe Office of Research recognizes the importance of an environment that enables, encourages, and rewards multidisciplinary and collaborative risk taking to solve the broad challenges in our increasingly complex world. To enhance collaboration across the University to creatively and meaningfully address the needs of our community and our society, we are pleased to announce the CSU Multidisciplinary Research Panel Series.

This monthly panel series will provide CSU faculty with the opportunity to share their research interests with a broad audience, to learn about the research of their colleagues across the University, and to develop wide-ranging collaborations. Panels will cover academic subjects as well as multidisciplinary issues such as creativity, risk-taking, and innovation.

All seminars will be held in PHH-104 on Fridays, from 12:00 – 1:15 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
