The RRP is excited to announce Writing a Business Plan – A Hands-on Workshop for Cores will take place in early 2018! This workshop includes interactive group sessions as well as one-on-one coaching sessions. The workshop covers the RRP Business Plan Template, with participants writing a full, professional business plan for their core throughout the course of the workshop.

Cohort size will be limited to ensure that each core is able to receive individual attention throughout the workshop. A maximum of 2 persons from each core facility may attend the workshop and work on the business plan together. If you are interested in participating now or in the future, please fill out the interest form linked below by December 1, 2017.

The Fall Core Fairs provided a great oppurtunity to learn about cores on campus and an open platform for questions about research projects.

Visitors enjoyed pizza while talking with core representatives about offered services and instruments across all campuses. A raffle was also held for the chance to win 1 of 5 Amazon Gift Cards!

Congratulations to our winners! - Hildegarde B.  /  Randy J.  /  Evangeline P.  /  Christine W.  and  Chenling X.
