Lunchtime Engagement Series

The Center for Nursing Research sponsors a lunchtime engagement series designed to build dialogue and facilitate collaboration among faculty and students in relation to their research efforts.

Engagement Series presentations are generally held the first Monday of the month from noon to 1 p.m. in Henderson Hall. Some presentations are offered remotely to Kent State faculty via Blackboard Learn. Attendees may be eligible for one contact hour of continuing education (CE) credit*.

What should I expect?

At an Engagement Series presentation, you’ll join a group of other attendees in a meeting room and listen as a presenter or invited guest shares their expertise on a particular topic. At the end of the presentation, there will be a Q&A session where you will have the opportunity to ask the presenter questions.

This is a lunchtime event, so you may want to bring a boxed lunch. Snacks are usually provided.
