VPRI hosts forum on return to research activities

Last Thursday, April 30, nearly 110 researchers, scholars, and creative artists from Miami University came together for a virtual forum on resuming research activities under the relaxed pandemic restrictions in the recent Stay Safe Ohio order.

During the forum, Vice President for Research & Innovation Jim Oris said measures taken to re-open campus to research, scholarly, and creative activities will be guided by the Return to Research Committee, which consists of 25 faculty and staff. Members of the committee were nominated by divisional deans and department chairs.

As the committee’s work progresses, Oris plans to host bi-weekly forums, with the next forum scheduled for Thursday, May 14. An invitation with a link to the forum will be sent several days prior to the forum. Any member of the Miami research community who must attend via phone may request a calendar invitation for the event.
