Department Workshops

If your department or unit is interested in a repeat of a previously-offered workshop or exploring a topic not offered on our workshop calendar, we’re happy to put something together and bring it to your department at a time that is convenient for your department or group. All you need to do is contact us to request the workshop or meeting and choose a time frame. The workshops can be a quick introduction to a topic (5-10 minutes), an extended exploration and discussion (2 hours), or anything in between.
