Hosting a Research Forum

Since launching the Research Forum program nearly four years ago, some 25 events have taken place resulting in new research collaborations and funding. Moving forward, OVPRGS would like suggested topics for these programs to come from faculty.

To propose a topic for consideration, approval and sponsorship by OVPRGS, please complete and submit this form.

Once your proposal is approved, your responsibilities as host include:

  • Confirm four or five speakers (each person limited to five minutes to present) representing different aspects of the topic. These speakers should help drive the conversation for the remainder of the event.
  • Provide a list of attendees to invite (at least 40 names). Our office will handle the invitations.
  • Plan to assist as emcee of the event.

OVPRGS will handle all logistics from securing the location,  arranging for refreshments, invitations and A/V equipment.
