National Capital Region Notices
Seeking data on faculty research expertise for NCR website
National Capital Region Operations has begun an effort to update and augment the NCR website to include more information about the research being done by NCR faculty. Many faculty should have already received an email from the NCRO office asking for help in this endeavor.
The email requests that you follow a link to view your entry in the faculty listing and to select five keywords best describing your research expertise. Responding should take just a few minutes. The email will not accept replies, but provides a mechanism for feedback. If you have not received this email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
