COVID-19 continues to change rapidly across the world and we want to take steps to limit the spread and risks of the disease in our community. With this goal in mind, we are suspending all events that are not vital to the academic mission of the University.  

As of March 13, 2020, all visits within our workshop series have been cancelled.
