College Research Support

Design Research Seminars

The IDRO-sponsored Design Research Seminars are opportunities for College of Design faculty and staff to learn more about research topics and researchers and their scholarly work in the College of Design. They are held on Fridays from 12:10 to 1 p.m. in Room 130 unless otherwise arranged. Normally, we try to schedule design research talks for the fall semester and research support services in the spring.

Spring 2017 Schedule
There are no college research seminars scheduled for this semester. University research training opportunities will be posted to “Research News.”
