Changes Coming to the Research Administration Town Hall Schedule and Format

A survey was conducted last summer to gather input on the Research Administration (RA) Town Halls with the goal of creating a more effective forum for the UCSF research administration community. Based on input from the survey, the schedule and format of the RA Town Halls is being revised.

The RA Town Hall will be held quarterly beginning in March 2017. These sessions will be conducted as webinars; you may participate using your computer via a real-time webcast. We will continue to use the Research Administration Town Hall Chatter Group, available via MyAccess, to communicate agendas, the webcast link, and any technical issues or updates during the Town Halls. You can also use Chatter to submit topic requests for upcoming Town Hall meetings.

In addition to the RA Town Halls, we will be conducting periodic Research Administration Lunch & Learn sessions on important topics for our research administration community. The Research Administration Town Hall Chatter Group will be used to announce RA Lunch & Learn sessions and topics; you can also use Chatter to submit topic requests for upcoming RA Lunch & Learn sessions.

If you are not already a member, join the Research Administration Town Hall Chatter Group today, and look for announcements on the next RA Town Hall and RA Lunch & Learn sessions on Chatter and in future editions of the Controller's Office Newsletter.
