Guide to EAB’s University Research Presentations

Explore the University Research presentation offerings available and schedule a presentation.

In partnership with Strategic Leaders, EAB’s Research Advisory Services experts work actively with partners to find best practices that suit your institution, and to help you make sound decisions that attract institutional support. We can bring our research to your team, for a single focused session or multiple sessions adapted to different audiences.

The University Research Forum offers presentations for diverse audiences, including Vice Presidents of Research, Academic Research leadership, and Research Development professionals.

If you are interested in having EAB experts present to a group on your campus or facilitate a discussion, we recommend reaching out to your Strategic Leader one month before a virtual session. For some especially popular times of year (e.g., the start of the semester, around spring and fall board retreats) we recommend reaching out three months in advance, or as early as you can.
