Past Development Events

The Office of Faculty Affairs is committed to offering valuable workshops and opportunities to help our faculty enhance their professional skills. Two new initiatives were fully launched in the spring of 2018; the Career Matters series and Research Tapas. Each Series is a presentation of no longer than 20 minutes with lots of time for questions and conversation on the relevant topic. In addition, the Office of Faculty Affairs routinely invites external presenters to host workshops to enhance faculty grant writing. 

Please find below a listing of development opportunities over the past few years. 

If you're unable to come to the UVM Medical Campus for the Research Tapas or Career Matters, consider joining the zoom conference and logging into 163-804-671 meeting.
