About the Series

The Research in Progress: STEM Talks Seminar Series is funded by the Office of the Provost and the Arts & Sciences Dean's Office. The goal of this series is to provide a forum for early-career faculty from Arts & Sciences to present novel research ideas they are pursuing. This venue brings together research-active W&M faculty who are eager to share their creative research ideas and projects and are seeking feedback, discussion, collaboration, and community amongst their peers. The series focuses on novel ideas, and preliminary data rather than completed stories or funded projects. We believe that by fostering interactions between research-active faculty we can reduce research silos and further "strengthen W&M’s research ecosystem to spark new discovery"; a goal of Vision 2026.

Supported by the Office of the Provost and Arts & Sciences.
