Established in partnership with unit administrators to support Research Administrators at U-M, the Research Administrators Network (RAN) meetings are meant to provide continuing education in the area of research administration and provide opportunities for unit administrators to interact with each other and leaders in central administration. Typical agendas for quarterly meetings include updates on current events in research at U-M and the presentation of an educational topic.
