Campus Forums in October: Please Come to Discuss Grand Challenges Research Ideas

I’m writing to encourage you to attend some very important campus conversations scheduled for October.

As you may remember, the Grand Challenges Research Strategies Team, composed of and led by distinguished faculty, solicited ideas for “grand challenge” research priorities this University could fruitfully embrace. The Team received 130 submissions (with 350+ faculty identified as leads or co-leads). It grouped the submissions under some broad themes, and it has now planned campus forums to discuss, integrate, and enrich the ideas suggested by faculty in those submissions.

Happening Now

Grand Challenges Research

Faculty, staff, and students are invited to five campus forums in October that will help shape a set of Grand Challenges research priorities the University will publicly embrace.
