About the Research Impact & Promotion Boot Camp

The Research Impact & Promotion Boot Camp takes places over one full day. The purpose of this boot camp is to teach graduate students how to measure research impact and come up with strategies for increasing research impact and promoting research to increase its visibility.

Below is the date, time, and location for the Research Impact & Promotion Boot Camp, along with a link to the Registration Form (which includes a Pre-Boot Camp assessment component that will help us better serve the needs of attendees). Seating is limited to the first 30 graduate students who register.  If it turns out you are unable to attend, please let us know one week in advance so that your seat can be given to someone on the waiting list. 

* Please note that this Boot Camp will be recorded and the recording made available online to anyone unable to attend in person. By registering for this Boot Camp, you are agreeing to the possibility of being part of this recording.

If you have any questions about the Research Impact & Promotion Boot Camp, please contact Bonnie Fong (
