June 2022 Newsletter
Summer Virtual Workshops USS and Hughes Participants 
Anyone is welcome to attend the Workshops to be held on the Thursdays 3-4:00pm EST
Register for each workshop via the Zoom Meeting Link below.
The workshops are designed to engage USS and Hughes students to communicate their project goals, design, and findings to non-disciplinary audiences. Such audiences would include majors from other disciplines, high school students, alumni, legislators, etc.
Staff and faculty from departments and offices across the institution will be invited to provide their perspectives and students will have the opportunity to engage with one another, as they develop and share their ideas for dissemination to non-disciplinary audiences.
The workshops will also be used to develop ideas participants presented in their program applications regarding public dissemination. For USS students, a deliverable which will be completed in consultation with the research mentor(s) is expected to be submitted at the end of the summer. For example, during summer 2021 students developed research postcards.
