Research Administration Day

We offer continuing education and professional development seminars for U of A staff. Research Administration Day (RAD) is an annual event that provides practical presentations and interactive workshops focused on the complexity, diversity and accountability of administrative responsibilities with research funding.

The purpose of RAD is to promote and support excellence in research administration. It is designed for those who are involved with research administration and management at the faculty, department and project level. Three learning streams are offered to meet the differing needs of research administrators at the U of A: 100 (introductory), 200 (intermediate) and 300 (advanced) level sessions.
