Central to Success: Strengthening the Foundation of Research Administration

The Michigan Chapter of the Society of Research Administrators International has planned its annual meeting for 2018 on June 29th at Central Michigan University. CMU, located in Mount Pleasant, began as a teacher's college in 1892 and has grown to a Carnegie classified doctoral research institution with a diverse portfolio of sponsored research. The 2018 conference will pull together an experienced group of presenters to discuss topics and ideas critical to strengthening the foundation of research administration in a time of constant change. Come join us for a great day of networking and professional development on the beautiful CMU campus on Friday, then make your way up north for the opening weekend of the Fourth of July holiday - you're that much closer already!

To register onsite, come with a personal check or credit card, and one of our excellent volunteers will be able to register you. Note that you must be a Full or Chapter Member to register.

Networking Activities

We've incorporated fun networking activities throughout the day of the conference. Activities range from a fun ice-breaker in the morning, to networking breakouts during lunch, to a Jeopardy-style game at the end of the conference. We hope these activities will LIFT you up!
