2021 Student Fall Schedule Announced!

Smith Institute’s Workshop Series covers various research topics and tools such as identifying a research topic and using Qualtrics to design an online survey. Our workshops help students develop the research skills that are needed to be a successful graduate of JCSU and competitive in the job market. We also host a graduate school workshop series to provide relevant information to students who are considering education beyond their four-year degree. We will use a hybrid model, and have a limited number of in-person slots that you must pre-register for- all other participants will be virtual, and the Zoom links will be available closer to the dates of each workshop!
