Trainees Stay Involved & Connected During Shut-Down

Like most universities, SU closed it’s doors for in-person instruction on March 13, 2020 to slow the spread of COVID-19. Students, faculty and staff have worked hard during this time to make the switch to working from home while completing their classes, training and research. Despite the closure, EMPOWER finished the semester strong with visiting speakers and a career panel – distinguished scholars and researchers all. The trainees made the best of the opportunity to spend time with these professionals and also hone their Zoom skills. On Thursday evenings, the trainees and faculty got together virtually for Trivia Night. Hosted by EMPOWER co-I and Earth Science professor Christa Kelleher (with some special guest hosts!), trivia night was a relaxing, fun way for the trainees and faculty to stay connected.
