Training Opportunities Offered by the Curtis Center

The Curtis Center offers training to researchers at various levels of their careers.

2021 Curtis Center IDEAL Leaders Summer Institute

The 2021 IDEAL Leaders Summer Institute has been postponed until further notice.

At a future time, the Curtis Center will hold a 3-day training institute for junior faculty who want to jump-start their research programs. The training focuses on research infrastructure and techniques for how to become an Inclusive, Diverse, Equitable, Accessible, and Laudable (IDEAL) Research Leader. Attendees will learn how to (1) build research infrastructure, (2) maximize research productivity, and (3) meet research goals. While the tools learned during this institute are transferable across disciplines and professions, we will underscore tools and techniques that advance racial equity and health equity research and leadership.
