Please join us in Washington, DC this April for a unique two-day meeting that will bring together Provosts and Chief Research Officers in a cross-silo conversation on the research enterprise. We’ll explore the implications of achieving and maintaining a robust research enterprise, including lessons in hiring “superstar” research faculty and the impacts of AI on the research landscape. Provosts who attend this roundtable will also discuss our latest student success and career development insights on day two, while chief research officers will learn strategies for effective shared governance.

Note: For travel planning purposes, the meeting will commence at 12:00 p.m. on the first day and adjourn at 12:00 p.m. on the second day.
