CFAR Faculty Retreat

Monday June 23rd from 9AM – 12:30 PM, SON Room 1W502

The goals of this annual event are to create opportunities for scientific networking and collaboration and to foster inclusive and transparent strategic planning. Ultimately the outcome of this retreat is to guide the direction, scientific focus, and programs of our CFAR to support the widest range of faculty needs. In preparation for the retreat we asked faculty to complete a survey to inform our strategic planning and to identify key resource gaps, unmet needs, and other enhancements to CFAR cores and services.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this event – your feedback is tremendously valuable to us!
