MPC Workshop

The MPC Workshop provides a rich set of opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to familiarize themselves with, and keep abreast of, the important work being done at the MPC. Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to present their research and other works in progress and to pursue professional training and development. The flexible and casual setting of the MPC Workshop is designed to support all participants. Workshops are scheduled on Fridays from 12:15pm-1:15pm during the academic year. This fall to keep participants safe and healthy, all workshops will be held virtually. 

Please contact mpc@umn.edu with any questions.
