Learning Opportunities

Face-to-Face Learning Opportunities
Do you prefer in-person opportunities?  If so, SPA is involved in several face-to-face opportunities throughout the year. 

Click here to register for available training.

Currently, we are working in collaboration with ORTT on the Institute of Departmental Research Administration.  This seven week institute focuses on research administration through the eyes of the departmental administrative staff, and will be offered annually.  If you would like to participate in the next Institute, please contact Nikki Turner.

If you are a faculty member or someone who needs a shorter training, we will be posting our spring date for the Research Roundtable soon.  The Research Roundtable involves a short hot topic discussion from each of our Research Administration Directors (ORTT, Compliance, and SPA), and then we open it up for your questions and comments.  We will post the date and time for the spring session here and on the ASU Daily Digest E-mail, and you will be able to register from this website.
