Participant Experience

Overall, the atmosphere is a positive one, with many participants excited for the face-to-face experience alone due to the online nature of some programs. The following feedback was received from the Charlotte survey:

  • “I was not sure of what the day would bring but found the day not only informative but fantastic! [Knowledge without Boundaries] re-energized me to push forward and publish my dissertation! Thank you!” –UOPX Alumni
  • "I appreciated the access to the centers directions and the ability to verify and validate ideas as well as potential opportunities” –UOPX Faculty
  • “Extremely informative; my understanding of scholarship was broaden.” – UOPX Student

Thanks to all the attendees for spending the day with us. We hope to see you all again soon!
