Target Audience

The Navigate Program is pleased to announce the Fall 2023 virtual offering of  Navigate: Fundamentals. This course is offered for newer research administrators with up to two years of working experience in research administration.

Note: Staff who attended the in-person or virtual Navigate: Fundamentals course in the past should not apply for this offering. Need a refresher on this content? The eLearning modules under the section called Fundamentals of Research Administration Modules are based largely on the content covered in the virtual instructor-led Fundamentals course - check it out! There are also recorded Navigate webinars and other video resources on various topics available on our Video Resources web page.

Course Content

The program has been expertly crafted to follow the workflow and business process of the sponsored research project lifecycle.

In addition to instructor presentations and class activities, the training introduces newcomers to research administration leaders from around campus and exposes them to both the business needs and outcomes required for a successfully managed research project. 

Attendance at all 10 sessions and completion of pre-session assignments are required. Participants who attend ALL sessions and complete the course requirements will receive a Certificate of Achievement available in My LINC.

Course Fee

The course fee is temporarily waived.
