Participants will work with a number of researchers from higher education to refine their research interests, consider how to make time to conduct research, learn about ways to fund research, and explore publishing outlets.  Interactive panels, roundtables, and breakout sessions will allow participants to tailor the Institute to their interests and needs, and each participant will leave the Institute with next steps for achieving their research-related goals.
