Welcome & Introductions
Introductions of the participants, faculty and grad mentors, and key department staff. This session will also provide an overview of the summer, including the goals and requirements of this program, and how to get the most out of this program. The requirements include attendance at the weekly Lunch and Learn seminars (complete with a free lunch!), a brief bio and research abstract to be published on the program webpage, and participation in a research showcase at the end of the summer.
