CDS Student Coffee Chat - Special on COVID-19

Students, it’s a double cup of Coffee Chat!!!  On Saturday, April 4th, the College of Doctoral Studies is hosting TWO Student Coffee Chats. Each chat is tailored to support students as we all focus on understanding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and seek ways to support others within this time of crisis.

Coffee Chat #1: Social Distancing, Perseverance, and the “New Normal”

Date:    Saturday, April 4, 2020

Time:    9:00 AM (Phoenix Time)/ 12:00 PM (EST)

COVID-19? Teleworking? Coronavirus? School Closures? Social Distancing? During this time of rapid and continuous change, many may find it difficult (if not impossible) to refocus on coursework, dissertation writing, research, or other tasks related to program completion.  In this Student Coffee Chat, we will discuss how to regain focus as we examine the true meaning of being a student within the “new normal.”  This session includes strategies for minimizing distractions, goal setting, seeking social connections, and practicing self-care. (Students are encouraged to bring questions)

Coffee Chat Guests include:

Dr. Rodney Luster, University Research Chair and Licensed Psychotherapist

Dr. Miriam Frolow, Campus and Academic Director (Guest Co-Host)

Dr. Kimberly Underwood, University Research Chair (Host)

Coffee Chat #2: Conducting Research and Program Progression During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Date:    Saturday, April 4, 2020

Time:    10:30 AM (Phoenix Time)/ 1:30 PM EST

As many of our nation’s employees are finding themselves impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers are scrambling to generate quality scholarship within the “new normal.” How does the Covid-19 pandemic impact the many ways to develop research projects and conduct research?  How do these changes impact future or existing IRB applications?  How do personal decisions impact program progression during times of crisis?  Please join us as we examine these questions (and others) and provide guidance and clarity as we seek to better understand the true impacts of the “new normal.”  (Students are encouraged to bring questions)

Coffee Chat Guests include:

Dr. Shawn Boone, Associate Dean of Instruction

Dr. Andrew Maus, Associate Dean, Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Dissertation Services

Nicholas Galemore, Assistant Dean of Operations

Dr. Kimberly Underwood (Host)
