February 14 IDR Coffee Hour

Hello IDR members!

I hope everyone has had a great start of the semester! IDR is excited to announce its first coffee hour (along with Carol Lee donuts) of the semester on Valentine’s Day, Wednesday, February 14th from 10-11 am in GLC room B. We will have coffee and donuts for everyone and several executive board members (including myself!) will be there to discuss upcoming IDR events and other things. If you’d like to just drop in for a coffee/donut or hang out to either chat with us or work, you’re more than welcome! Current members, recently accepted members, and friends and family of the members are welcome!

Also, as a heads up, we are planning to have another speaker spotlight event on Monday, February 19th at 5pm. I’ll send out further details including information about the speaker and location ASAP but I wanted to let you know so you can see if you can make it!

Hope to see you Wednesday!

November 7 IDR Coffee Hour

Hello IDR members!

I hope your semester is going well and your research has been successful! I would like to invite you all to our first Coffee Hour at the GLC! We will have a room reserved where we will have coffee and hot water for tea as well as some pastries/snacks. We invite you to stop by for as long as you’d like, whether to just pop in to say hi and grab some coffee, or if you want to hang out and chat or do work. This will happen on Tuesday, November 7th from 10-11am in GLC Meeting Room B. Feel free to bring anyone interested in becoming a member as well! I hope to see you all there!

In an effort to continue to share our interdisciplinary research, I also wanted to ask that if you have any major accomplishments in your research, publications, conference presentations, etc. throughout the year, please send me a quick email about it! I’d like to share some of the work each of us does on the Facebook page and hopefully soon on the IDR website. If you know of someone else in the organization who has accomplished something like this, please let me know about it!

Lastly, we will be having a speaker spotlight lecture on Thursday, November 9th from 11-12pm. I’ll be sending out detailed information about it very soon but please pencil this into your calendars as it should be a very interesting talk!

Inaugural IDR Fall 2017 Meeting

Hello fellow IDR members!

I hope your Fall semester has been going well so far! I would like to invite all of you to our first IDR General Meeting on Tuesday, October 3rd from 12-1pm in GLC Meeting Room C. This meeting will be a brown bag lunch event, so bring your own lunch and come meet with myself, the other IDR executive officers, and other members!

At this meeting we will discuss upcoming items/events, open applications for membership, and we’d also like to have 2 IDR members present their research at the meeting! If you’re interested in presenting, please let me know ASAP. This will be a ~10min informal presentation to the group followed by time for questions and discussion. This is the perfect opportunity to get questions and insight from an interdisciplinary audience. Feel free to either present completed/progressing work or pose any questions/difficulties you may be having so that those in attendance can possibly help!

If you know of anyone interested in becoming a member of IDR, feel free to bring them along!

I hope to see you all there!
